Master's Programme in Nanoscience

Working in the laboratory

Nanoscience courses include courses from chemistry, physics or cell and molecular biology.

Master's Programme in Nanoscience

The goal of the Masters Programme in Nanoscience is to educate interdisciplinary experts in the rapidly developing field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. As a student of the programme, you will gather multidisciplinary know-how in the field of physics, chemistry, and cell & molecular biology. The one of the key ideas of the Master's degree programme is the multidisciplinary approach to nanoscience.

The research profile of the Nanoscience Center

Biological nanostructures, organic nanochemistry, spectroscopy, experimental nanophysics and computational nanoscience are all strategic areas of research in the NSC. NSC combines experts from biology, chemistry and physics under the same roof which creates an environment for new innovations and ideas.  


The master’s programme requires two years of full-time study, 120 ECTS credits, for a Master of Science degree. The major is one of the following: cell and molecular biology, organic or physical chemistry or physics, the other two minors. The speciality  of the programme is the multidisciplinary approach in sciences.  In addition to major studies and advanced studies on related fields of science the studies include special courses on nanoscience. The courses introduce the students to both theoretical and experimental techniques of the nanoscience field. Master’s theses in the programme are always interdisciplinary. The application period for Autumn 2017 studies will opens by the end of 2016.
