On the nanometre scale, the distinction between disciplines such as physics, chemistry and biology becomes less clear. Characteristic for nanotechnology is therefore a large degree of interdisciplinarity. The nanoscience Master´s programme at Lund University has its scientific base in a physics description of nanoscale phenomena, but in addition to nanophysics you can, depending on your background and interests, choose to specialise in fields such as nanoelectronics, materials chemistry or biophysics.
The programme is part of the Nanometer Structure Consortium, one of the world´s leading nanoscience research centres. You will interact with cutting-edge research throughout the programme, starting in the first semester and building up to the Master´s project. Moreover, by taking advantage of the wealth of courses offered by Lund University, you will be able to explore the cross-disciplinary nature of nanoscience.
There is an increasing demand worldwide for people knowledgeable in nanotechnology. Nanoscientists are not only needed in specialised nanotechnology companies but also in more traditional industries, with more and more nanotechnology being incorporated into products. Thanks to the close connection to world-class research, the Master s programme in nanoscience also provides excellent preparation for doctoral studies and an academic career.
As a student of the nanoscience master programme at LTH, I highly recommend the course!
