Description

MSc in Nanoscience and Technology is a new graduate programme, and the first of its kind in China. It is an interdisciplinary and research-based programme with a focus on theoretical, experimental and practical subjects.

The programme provides students with skills and abilities to handle concepts and methods within the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Furthermore, it provides basic knowledge of business innovation and entrepreneurship.

The students in the Nanoscience and Technology programme will be recruited from many different BSc fields such as physics, chemistry, biology and nanoscience. A Nanoscience and Technology student will, however, obtain an interdisciplinary and thorough knowledge of the research methodology. This allows the student to work in projects that often involve colleagues from other disciplines.

The two-year programme takes place in China.
