Master's Degree in Nanoscience and Technology
The Master’s degree program in Nanoscience and Technology aims to provide students with the skill set and abilities to independently solve problems by applying developed methods in nanosciences, be it in base-knowledge or applied research, in business, or as an entrepreneur or independent business owner. Students who successfully complete the Master’s degree program are eligible to be admitted to the corresponding doctorate degree program.
The Master’s degree in Nanoscience and Technology expands on the Bachelor’s degree offered in Technical Physics and offers in-depth, advanced courses in selected subject areas of nanosciences and technology, putting students at the frontier of current, rapidly changing research.
In addition, the Master’s degree program – particularly the completion of a Master’s degree thesis – enables graduates to solve current problems in research and/or industrial development and develop experimental and/or theoretical work programs. Students can improve their proficiency in English by taking part in English-language courses. Students are also especially encouraged to pursue special study abroad programs which allow for corresponding credit recognition.
The Master’s degree program in Nanoscience and Technology focuses on conveying base-knowledge education in physical and chemical properties of low-dimensional systems, hands-on experimental and technological methods for the preparation and study of nanomaterials and nanodevices, as well as the development of corresponding applications. The program aims to educate students to become multidisciplinary specialists who possess sound knowledge about special properties of natural and artificial nanostructures and the ability to realize new, cutting-edge applications in technology and research.
The Master’s degree program provides graduates with a strong understanding of the nature and operation of research as well as ways to implement findings in technology and other real-world applications. The broad educational program qualifies graduates to work in various fields, particularly as part of an interdisciplinary team. Students are able to explain scientific findings in a comprehensible way and apply multidisciplinary approaches to benefit society in research and application. Graduates are also in the position to follow content-based, methodological developments in the field and provide expert advice on their use.
