Study programme focus
The MSc programme in Physics and Nanotechnology covers a wide range of technological, theoretical, and experimental techniques in modern physics.
The applications include various topics, such as the development of nanostructured materials with tailor-made electrical, magnetic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties, manufacturing and integration of nano- and micro-components in systems design, modelling of complex biological systems, optical data processing and transfer, and the development of technologies for sourcing, storing, and converting sustainable energy—e.g. fuel cells and hydrogen technology.
In the course of the programme, you must carry out one or more experimental projects as part of a research group at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) . In this way, you will gain basic theoretical competencies and experience with experimental work. You can prepare your final thesis in collaboration with one of our research groups or industrial partners, and—of course—under the supervision of a DTU professor or lecturer.
The ‘Physics and Nanotechnology’ programme allows you to specialize in one of the six study lines:
- Biophysics, Biosensors and Fluidics
- Physics and Nanotechnology for Sustainability and Energy
- Nano-scale Materials Physics
- Nanosystems Engineering
- Optics and Photonics
- Quantum Engineering
You should be aware, however, that the choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.
MSc graduates in Physics and Nanotechnology are typically employed in research and development departments in private and private organizations, such as:
- Haldor Topsoe
- Novo Nordisk
- NIL Technnology
