The Show Must Boson

General description

From the Stone Age to the Bronze Age, from the Iron Age and now to the Silicon Age. The progresses of our society have been extremely defined by our ability to manipulate and understand materials in order to achieve a technological development. But… what’s next?

In the years we were able to bend the properties of matter to create powerful computers, efficient energy storages and sources and everything that we could have imagined but now we are facing a new and exciting challenge: understanding and using materials which are bizarre and behave against our intuition! Quantum materials!

Scared? You shouldn’t!

Join us in a wonderful BEST course in which PhDs and Professors will take you by the hand in the world of complex condensed matter physics. Featuring the lectures we have prepared for you, you will develop an understanding of the basic principles of quantum materials focusing, however, on real society-changing application! Aren’t we engineers? Aren’t we curious and ready to change the world? Whether you want to revolutionize the way of producing energy by confining thermonuclear plasmas with high-temperature superconductors or your goal is to change the dogmas of modern electronics through quantum computers, this course is what you need!

What are you waiting for? Apply now and be part of the most exciting technological revolution we are facing!
