The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology is tailored to students aiming at international careers in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology, both regarding the fundamentals of nanoscience and how to design and build components on the nanoscale.
The programme is intended for students aiming at a career in the area of materials science, which is a very broad field both scientifically and technologically. Scientists who work in industry or at universities and engineers who work in materials science are active in fields ranging from fundamental materials development to application of materials technology to products and processes.
The Master's Programme in Nanotechnology provides a solid background in solid state physics, semiconductor devices, materials science and design, microelectronics, materials chemistry and an introduction to biotechnology. It offers a broad range of fundamental courses, e.g., quantum mechanics and solid state physics, but the programme is also experimentally oriented and provides several laboratory exercises as well as practical experience from advanced research tools for materials and device characterization.
The Material Physics and Nanotechnology master's programme focuses on the physics of new materials and covers a wide range of materials used in for example semiconductor technology, optoelectronics and biotechnical applications.
Are you interested in diving into a different world where classical laws do not hold anymore and quantum mechanics governs? Would you like to take an atomistic view in order to understand how things work? Do you like working in a truly interdisciplinary environment? What about developing new biomedical sensors by applying nanotechnology or connecting electronics to living cells? In that case: study Engineering Nanoscience at Lund University. This is a 5-year program culminating in a Master of Science degree. Note: The first three years of the program are conducted in Swedish. The final 2 years will be conducted similarly to the Master's program and given mainly in English.
