The Nanoscience programme at Aarhus University is both practical and research-oriented, and provides the opportunity for completing an MSc project in various areas, including nanomaterials, nanocatalysis, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanofood, toxicology, and ethical aspects of nanotechnology.
The MSc in Nanoscience programme is 120 ECTS credits. It provides an opportunity to study subjects in the fields of physics, chemistry and molecular biology as well as in specific nanoscience subjects. Through their choice of courses and MSc project, students specialise in one of the disciplines of nanophysics, nanochemistry, or molecular biology, based on their academic qualifications. Students are offered guidance in selecting their individual course programmes from a suite of master’s courses offered by iNANO and the relevant departments. The degree programme concludes with an MSc project.
Nanoscience graduates are qualified to carry out research and development work in both public and private sectors in medicine, the environment, biotechnology, and the IT and communication industries. Many R&D projects are under way at iNANO in collaboration with approximately 100 Danish and international companies including Danfoss, Grundfos, Haldor Topsøe, Lundbeck, Novozymes, Arla Foods and Aalborg Portland. The iNANO school – part of the iNANO Center – comprises not only an international graduate school, but also associated research groups in physics, chemistry, biology and molecular biology, working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. iNANO promotes excellent science and provides an academic environment for PhD students of the highest calibre. Successful applicants will have been within the top 10 per cent of their year group at undergraduate level and will have shown superior academic skills.
