About

Nanotechnology can be used in numerous different contexts such as development of new materials and new technologies. The specialisation in Nanomaterials and Nanophysics  offered by Aalborg University focuses on designing, fabricating and controlling materials and components with dimensions on the nanoscale, i.e. from 1 to 100 nm.

Overview

You will learn how nanotechnology can be used to develop new optic and electronic components and new materials for use in communications technology, sensor technology or catalysis. Furthermore, you will gain insight into the possibilities, issues and challenges that engineers within nanotechnology are faced with on a day-to-day basis.

When studying the two-year Master’s programme Materials and Nanotechnology with specialisation in Nanomaterials and Nanophysics, you have the opportunity to investigate the fundamental science as well as the contemporary research that make up the field of nanotechnology. You have time to immerse yourself in topics you find particularly interesting and you can take a step back and look at the bigger picture.

Applying the most advanced nanofabrication technology to materials makes it possible to obtain decisive control over their properties, and thereby construct unique materials and components with new and unexpected properties for applications within for example energy technology, communication, catalysis and data storage and processing.

Studying Nanomaterials and Nanophysics at Aalborg University, you get to work with the special electronic and optical characteristics of nanomaterials. Moreover, you gain insight into the development of nanotools and nanodevices.

Key subjects in the programme include:

  • semiconductor physics
  • nanoelectronics
  • optoelectronics
  • nano optics
  • surface physics

In your semester projects, you and your project group will work with complex and often interdisciplinary issues in relation to nanomaterials and nanophysics that challenge you to use all of your collected knowledge to come up with possible solutions. You are encouraged to occasionally collaborate with external organisations and businesses in your projects to get an idea of the work processes and current issues in the industry. This will prepare you better for your own work life after you graduate.

Job and career

Nanotechnology operates on the interfaces of traditional scientific areas. It has already contributed substantially to the understanding of interdisciplinary phenomena within science and engineering. Therefore, it is rapidly gaining ground in the traditional engineering areas such as material science, electronics, energy, and technology in general. With a Master’s degree in Nanotechnology, you can enter any of these engineering fields and contribute with new knowledge and methods as well as look at different ideas from a new perspective, which can help to develop new products.

As a graduate in Nanomaterials and Nanophysics, you have extensive knowledge of for example:

  • Solid state physics
  • Optics
  • Semiconductor physics
  • Surfaces and interfaces
  • Properties of materials and components on the nanoscale
  • Polymer and composite materials
  • Nanoelectronics

Academic requirements

GPA admission requirements GPA Your GPA, or Grade Point Average, is a number that indicates how well or how high you scored in your courses on average. Usually a GPA scales between 1.0 and 4.0, however different countries and universities can have different grading systems.
GRE admission requirements GRE® The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. It contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
GMAT admission requirements GMAT The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is a test intended to assess certain analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills in written English for use in admission to a graduate management program, such as an MBA. GMAT contains 4 sections - Analytical Writing Assessment, Integrated Reasoning, Quantitative and Verbal. The score has a range from 200 - 800.

English requirements

IELTS admission requirements IELTS The International English Language Test System (IELTS) tests your English-language proficiency on a scale of 1 – 9. The score refers to the combined average score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading).
6.5 (required)
TOEFL admission requirements TOEFL® IBT The TOEFL iBT® is given online through the internet at desiganated testing site. The test measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The score refers to the total score of 4 subjects (writing, listening, speaking, and reading), each subject has a range of 0 - 30.
88 (required)
PTE admission requirements PTE Academic PTE Academic (Pearson Test of English Academic) is a language test that enables students to demonstrate their writing, listening, speaking, and reading skills when applying to study in English. The score refers to a total score which ranges between 10 and 90.
