Institution Technical University of Denmark (DTU)
Campus Lyngby
Tuition per term (Non-EU/EAA/CH) 7500 EUR

The DTU-TUM 1:1 MSc programme in Physics and nanotechnology offers you a two year intensive exchange programme for students enrolled at either DTU or TUM. You will spend one year at TUM and one year at DTU and receive your Master’s degree from the university you are enrolled in. The MSc programme in Physics and Nanotechnology is heavily based on research accomplishments at the two universities and brings together the best of the Physics programme at TUM and the Physics and Nanotechnology programme at DTU. The applications include various topics, such as the development and characterization of nanostructured materials with tailor-made electrical, magnetic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties, manufacturing and integration of nano- and micro-components in systems design, medical and biological physcs, optical data processing and transfer, and the development of technologies for sourcing, storing, and converting sustainable energy.  

Career Opportunities  

Graduates within the field of Physics and Nanotechnology often find employment in the field of research and development in both major, well-established companies, and start-up businesses. 
Advanced physics skills and the competencies acquired through the ‘Physics and Nanotechnology’ programme are applicable in a wide range of areas—for example in the energy sector as well as the software and consultancy industries. MSc graduates often find jobs that leave room for variation—where they can help plan their own work assignments, and which include some travelling.


To be admitted to this programme, you must have an academic bachelor degree.

Danmarks Tekniske Universitet's hovedadresse ligger i Lyngby 10 kilometer nord for København, og det er primært her at DTU studerende bliver undervist. Du kan tage turen til DTU i Lyngby med bil eller ved hjælp af offentlige transportmidler. Der kører flere busser næsten lige til døren og Lyngby Station ligger 2 km. væk, men også her er der gode busforbindelser, f.eks. bus nr. 300S mod Nærum eller bus nr. 190. Begge har stoppested på Anker Engelunds Vej.
