Overview

When studying the Master's programme in Nanobiotechnology offered by  Aalborg University , you have the opportunity to investigate the fundamental science as well as the contemporary research that make up the field of nanobiotechnology. 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.

By constructing materials atom by atom or molecule by molecule, it is possible to obtain decisive control over their properties and develop unique materials with new and unexpected properties for applications within for example (bio)sensors, catalysis or medicine.

The Master's programme in Nanobiotechnology gives you insight into biotechnological research and nanomedicine for diagnosis. You will work with the modelling of molecules, giving you detailed insight into the biochemical processes in proteins and their interactions.

Careers

As a graduate in Nanobiotechnology, you have extensive knowledge that covers:

  • Advanced gene technology
  • Reaction engineering
  • High throughput systems
  • Drug discovery
  • Molecular electronics
  • Molecular simulations
  • Self-assembling systems
  • Drug delivery systems
  • Properties of interfaces
  • Spectroscopic methods such as MS and NMR

Furthermore, you are able to understand and reflect on theory, methods and experiments within the mentioned areas.

Problem based learning and working in groups during your study programme will give you many useful skills that make you an attractive candidate on the job market. You know how to approach a problem and solve it in collaboration with other people, which is often how things are done in the “real world”.

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.
