This unique interdisciplinary Master's course in NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicine addresses persons who have a university degree or a technical bachelor qualification in a natural science, medical or engineering subject. Admission requirements: Candidates with a bachelor's degree or an academic degree inscience, dentistry, biotechnology, pharmacy, engineering or medicinemay submit applications for the Master of NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicineprogram.
The Nanobiology programme of TU Delft and Erasmus MC builds on extensive existing bottom up research collaborations and cooperative mission organizations like Medical Delta. The molecular building blocks of living organisms are the focus and current advances in the nanotechnology toolkit enable the precise visualization, study and control of these biological molecules. Developments in biomedicine, such as studies on human genome variation and the control of stem cells, increasingly require analysis and quantitative description at the fundamental level.
This interdisciplinary materials science and engineering track provides a strong foundation for nanoscience and nanotechnology and is designed to prepare MSE majors for future interdisciplinary careers, for graduate research programs in materials science, nanotechnology, bioengineering and other disciplines.
The MSc programme in Physics and Nanotechnology covers a wide range of technological, theoretical, and experimental techniques in modern physics. The applications include various topics, such as the development of nanostructured materials with tailor-made electrical, magnetic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties, manufacturing and integration of nano- and micro-components in systems design, modelling of complex biological systems, optical data processing and transfer, and the development of technologies for sourcing, storing, and converting sustainable energy - e.g. fuel cells and hydrogen technology.
The Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology - DTU Nanotech - is a highly esteemed research institution within the field of micro- and nanotechnology. Applied science, innovation strategies and state-of-the-art technology form our core identity as a scientific institution. We encourage technology transfer and technology development through industry collaboration, and industrial PhD students are an integrated part of our PhD programme.
Nanoscience and nanotechnology are built upon chemistry and physics. This degree is a solid science degree (physics and chemistry) but with a unique focus on nanoscience and nanotechnology. In the Years 3 and 4 of the degree the student chooses to major in either physics or chemistry, but all students do the nanotechnology modules.
The graduate program is designed to address the need for an interdisciplinary graduate education at Duke in Nanoscience that extends beyond the traditional disciplines and skills that are taught within any existing department.
