  • 纳米制备和表征仪器的不限时且免费使用的权限。完整清单详见链接
  • 所有的博士成员将有机会到国外交流6到12个月。我们学生的足迹遍布全球多个顶尖大学,包括斯坦福大学,麻省理工学院,剑桥大学等,
  • 全英文教育。所有学生将使用英文进行工作交流,这对于他们未来找工作有着积极的影响。如果一个学生在开始时不能很好地用英文沟通并不是问题,我们更在意的是学生的技术能力。并且就语言问题我们发现,使用我们的方法,所有的学生在毕业之前他们英语水平都得到了极大的提升,之后可以找到更好的工作。
  • 发表多篇期刊论文。我们的学生通常在毕业前会发表多篇研究论文。Lanza教授是多家国际期刊的编辑委员会成员。
  • 所有博士研究生将有机会参与知名的国际学术会议(主要来自IEEE,比如 IEEE-IEDM, IEEE-IRPSIEEE-IPFA)。博士后成员经常被推荐加入技术委员会,同样这对他们的职业生涯发展非常重要。



Soochow University & FUNSOM

According to Nature Index, Soochow University has been the fastest growing university in the world during the period 2015-2016, and it ranks top 70 in the world [see Nature] and top 7 in China [see Nature] in the field of physical sciences. Currently Soochow University has more than 43,000 students from all fields of science, and it is the leading institution of the Collaborative Innovation Center of Suzhou Nanoscience and Technology, a pioneering program for higher education in China [see Nature]. The Institute of Functional Nano & Soft Materials (FUNSOM) is the flagship department for high impact research in Soochow University. FUNSOM hosts 322 master students, 81 PhD students and 19 postdocs, which are divided in 30 research groups with sizes ranging between 15 and 30 members. With only 2% of its staff, FUNSOM produces near 65% of high impact research from Soochow University [Thomson Reuters, period 2014-2015]. On December 2016, Advanced Materials (Wiley-VCH) dedicated an entire special issue only to the institute [see Advanced Materials]. Soochow University has three main campuses in Suzhou, and FUNSOM is located at the one close to the Dushu Lake, which is surrounded by beautiful gardens and water canals.

Suzhou & Suzhou Industrial Park

Suzhou is a middle-size city of China (its population is only 10 millions persons) located 150 Km from Shanghai (that is 25 minutes by high speed train). Suzhou is known in China as the “Paradise on Earth”, due to the unique beauty of its gardens, traditional architecture and water canals (it is also known as the “Chinese Venice”). Since 2008, the city has experienced a rapid economic and social growth, boosted by the foundation of Suzhou Industrial Park, which hosts multiple national and international universities, research institutes, start-up companies, and multinationals branch offices. Suzhou Industrial Park offers excellent education programs and services in English, which has rapidly grown the international community. Please watch the corporate video of SIP for more details:
