The interdisciplinary Master’s programme in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging combines subjects from the Technical, Natural, and Life Sciences with the aim of producing graduates with state-of-the-art theoretical, technical, and clinical knowledge within neuroscience and neuroimaging.

In particular, the broad approach to the field of neuroimaging, including the theory and engineering aspects underlying all cutting-edge image modalities is not offered as a master education anywhere else in Europe. By uniting the expertise of Danish neuroscientist within basic, molecular, and clinical neuroscience and PET/MR based neuroimaging with Chinese scientists trained in advanced neurobiology, MEG and in the design of MRI hardware, the study program offers a unique educational environment not seen anywhere in the world. In addition, the study program includes courses in basic neuroscience from the molecular level to the clinical setting describing the different neurological diseases, the treatment of as well as the study of these including animal models used in neuroscience and neuroimaging research.

The SDC Master’s programme in Neuroscience and Neuroimaging is developed by active researchers from both Denmark and China – uniting the most recent research, modern technology, and problem-oriented learning methods. This programme is based in China.

Career Opportunities  

Graduates are expected to be in high demand due to their unique education and cross-cultural insight. They are foreseen to be employed in industrial R & D positions, academic research and/or clinical positions at neuro-oriented hospital departments or join neuroscience PhD schools at universities in Denmark and abroad.
