Master Program in Nanoscience

Programme description

On the nanometre scale, concepts and tools of physics are relevant also in chemistry and biology, and the different disciplines can interact closely. Nanoscience is therefore characterized by a large degree of interdisciplinarity. The 2-year Master Program in Nanoscience at Lund University has its scientific base in a physics description of nanoscale phenomena, but in addition to nanophysics you can choose to specialise in fields such as nanoelectronics, materials science or biophysics.

The program is part of NanoLund, one of the world's leading nanoscience research centers. You will interact with cutting-edge research throughout the program, starting in the first semester and building up to the Master project.

After being awarded the Master degree, you should be able to contribute to the developement of nanoscience and nanotechnology in academic and industrial research and developement. Further, you have the knowledge and understanding needed to be able to evaluate and incorporate nanoscience into products and applications of more traditional fields.
