Nanotechnology Degree Programs at University of Aarhus
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.
During their Master's degree students are required to specialize in one of three different disciplines: nanophysics, nanochemistry or nanomolecular biology.
