The Materials Science for Energy and Nanotechnology programme of the University of Oslo is an interdisciplinary course in physics and chemistry. Teaching has a comprehensive focus on functional groups with options for specialising in synthesis, characterisation and modelling.


A brief description of the programme

The Materials Science for Energy and Nanotechnology programme of the University of Oslo is for those who wish to understand the interaction between structure and characteristics, and who wish to contribute to the development of functional materials for use in energy production and storage, improved energy efficiency, and for electronics and advanced sensors.

The programme provides in-depth competence in the crossover between physics and chemistry and equips graduates to contribute to interdisciplinary solutions in product development and global challenges in the future. The programme will qualify you for work in fields related to either chemistry or physics, but also enable you to participate in larger projects where both physics and chemistry are important. Most of our graduates find employment in research and development within the private sector or at research centres and universities, often subsequent to a PhD research degree.

Career opportunities

The master's programme, in particular with a 60-credit thesis, qualifies you for further PhD studies in materials science, and depending on your field of specialisation, also in associated fields in physics and chemistry.

If you take an additional one-year teacher training programme, you will also become qualified to teach at secondary schools or colleges.

A number of former students have become entrepreneurs and have founded their own companies. An interdisciplinary background opens up many opportunities.

Advanced materials, sustainable energy solutions and nanotechnology are focus areas in business and research. A master's degree in Materials Science for Energy and Nanotechnology will pave the way for interesting employment.
