Do you want to help develop and design future materials and material systems with a focus on sustainability? At the Master's programme Materials and Nanotechnology at Aalborg University, the professional disciplines of engineering and applied physics are combined.

Visit the official programme website for more information


With the Materials and Nanotechnology programme at Aalborg University you will work to increase the durability and functionality of materials, and to improve existing products and develop new innovative product, e.g. using nanotechnology.

Aalborg University is famous for its problem based learning where you work in a team on a large written assignment often collaborating with an industrial partner. This study method is also called “The Aalborg Model for Problem Based Learning”. The method is highly recognised internationally, and the university is host to a successful UNESCO chair in Problem Based Learning in Engineering Education and a Centre for PBL and Sustainability approved by UNESCO.

The problem based project work at Aalborg University gives you a unique opportunity to acquire new knowledge and competences at a high academic level in an independent manner. You get to apply theory to practice when you work to solve real-life problems, and you will be well prepared for your future career.
