MIC is the department for micro- and nanotechnology at the Technical University of Denmark.MIC's mission is to: educate scientists and engineers, conduct research and development in micro and nanotechnology, and transfer new technologies to Danish industry, through joint programmes.
Recent work has focused on Linear and nonlinear optical nanoscopy; Photoemission and nonlinear optical spectroscopy of metallic quantum wells; Quantum mechanical and statistical modelling of organic and inorganic nanomaterials; Advanced spectroscopic and STM studies of surface structures and reactions.
During the first three years, students receive basic interdisciplinary training in physics, chemistry, biology, molecular biology, mathematics, and computer science. Many of the courses are followed along with students from these core disciplines. In addition, a number of courses address issues specific to the nano-area.
In addition to the undergraduate programs, iNANO hosts a Doctorate school in nanoscience, iNANOschool. Here, students can be admitted with a Master's degree in a traditional (5+3) year model, but at this Faculty, studies are more often carried out following a (4+4) year model where the students are admitted after four years of study and the Master's project becomes an integrated part of the Doctorate which then lasts four years. A special (3+5) year honors program has recently been introduced where very talented students can be admitted to graduate school with a Bachelor's degree.
The members of iNANO and their respective research groups have complementary research programs in the analysis and synthesis of nanomaterials. The framework of iNANO, however, fosters and strengthens interdisciplinary activities, promotes the development of new non-traditional programs, and provides unique facilities for competitive research.
At the Faculty of Science, University of Copenhagen, all BSc programmes are currently only offered in Danish. This also means that all courses at the bachelor's level are offered in Danish, with a few exceptions. For international, non-nordic students, admission to BSc programmes, besides fulfilling the academic admission requirements, is conditioned upon a passed Danish test.
