About

From a solid foundation in basic materials science, the Nanotechnology programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology gives the students a deep understanding of size-dependent materials, device and system properties, and also how these properties can be tailored by a controlled manipulation of the microstructure down to the atomic or molecular level.

Overview

Furthermore, it provides comprehensive knowledge of various nano-scale devices and their applications and fabrication methods. Special emphasis is paid to the understanding and usage of advanced characterisation methods to assess detailed materials and device properties. The programme is closely linked to the extensive research activities at the KTH Electrum laboratory, a world-leading resource for the education, research and product development related to micro and nanofabrication, as well as the Albanova Nanolab which is a physics research centre operated jointly by KTH and Stockholm University. 

The final semester degree project gives students an opportunity to carry out an in-depth study within their specialisation and to demonstrate the skills acquired during their studies. It can be carried out at an academic or industrial institution, needs to be relevant to the main field of study for the master’s degree, and is scheduled for the last term of the programme.

This is a two year programme (120 ECTS credits) given in English. Graduates are awarded the degree of Master of Science. The programme is given mainly at KTH Campus in Stockholm by the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (at KTH). 

Career

The Nanotechnology programme from KTH Royal Institute of Technology prepares you for a career in a wide range of areas in materials science, semiconductor, microsystems, and applied physics. Applications related to, for example, the Internet of Things and life sciences offer plenty of interesting job opportunities in high tech companies. The programme focuses on advanced nanoscale characterisation tools, and the unique experience of a state-of-the-art academic cleanroom environment will make you very competitive on the job market. Graduates with a specialisation in nanoscale materials will be well equipped to handle the sustainability challenges of modern society. Nanotechnology is also a major academic research field, and the programme provides a solid foundation for graduate studies at highly ranked universities, including KTH.
