About Nanoscience at Aarhus University

Nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field within the natural sciences. It deals with understanding and utilising materials and phenomena at the nanoscale - that is, between 0.1 and 100 nanometres. The ability to work on this scale makes it possible to develop highly improved or completely new functions and properties in a wide range of materials.

The MSc in Nanoscience programme at Aarhus University is relevant for students with a BSc degree from a Danish or international university in either nanoscience or an interdisciplinary combination of physics, chemistry, and molecular biology. The Nanoscience degree programme is both practical and research-oriented. Students can complete an MSc project in a number of areas, including nanomaterials, interfaces and catalysis, nano-medicine, synthetic biology, and nano-food.

PROGRAMME STRUCTURE

The MSc programme consists of 120 ECTS credits. Students study subjects within the fields of physics, chemistry, and molecular biology, as well as specific nanoscience subjects. Based on their previous academic specialisation, students choose their courses and the subject of their MSc project so as to specialise in one of four areas: nanomaterials, biomedical nanotechnology, structural biology and biophysics, or organic nanochemistry/soft matter. Students are offered guidance in selecting their individual course programmes from a suite of master's courses offered by iNANO and the relevant departments. The degree programme concludes with the Master's project.

INTERDISCIPLINARY INANO

The Nanoscience degree programme at Aarhus University is based at the Interdisciplinary Nanoscience Centre, iNANO. iNANO is staffed by its own researchers as well as researchers drawn from the departments of Physics, Chemistry, Molecular Biology, and Genetics as well as researchers from other departments and the Faculty of Health. The centre's mission is to build on three basic pillars: top-level international research, education at all levels from BSc to PhD, and innovation and interaction with industry and society at large.

CAREERS

As a graduate in Nanoscience, you will be qualified to work in R&D in both public and private sectors in medicine, the environment, biotechnology, and the IT and communication industries. A number of R&D projects are currently under way at iNANO, in collaboration with approximately a hundred Danish and international companies, including Novo Nordisk, Aalborg Portland, Arla Foods, Danfoss, Grundfos, Haldor Topsøe, Lundbeck, Unisense, Carlsberg, Dupont and Novozymes. The iNANO School - part of the iNANO Centre - comprises both an international graduate school and associated research groups in physics, chemistry, biology, and molecular biology, working in the field of nanoscience and nanotechnology. iNANO promotes excellent science and provides an academic environment for PhD students of the highest calibre, and many graduates of the programme go on to do a PhD.

Entry requirements

In general, admission to a Master’s degree programme requires successful completion of a relevant and recognised university degree equivalent to a Danish Bachelor’s degree in level and length (180 ECTS). All applications must also fulfil the English language requirements.

In addition, you must meet the specific requirements for the Nanoscience programme, which can be found on the Nanoscience study programme page.

What students think about Aarhus University

    Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering

    Testimonial from Sagar from India studying Mechanical Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It's very easy to work in English in Denmark. Everyone understands it and can talk in English. I also think that the culture is very interesting. Quite unique in fact. There’s a lot of focus on the potential of the individual, and there’s a lot of openness. Denmark has a very flat hierarchy, and that’s rare. I've never experienced this flat hierarchy before, so actually it was something of a culture shock. And it permeates everything – even on the programme. It's very positive, it's not like the lecturer just arrives, teaches, and goes. There’s interaction, and you’re encouraged to discuss and have an opinion. The professors are genuinely interested in hearing your own opinion about things; even the simplest questions are given respect and are discussed until every aspect is clear to us.”

    Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering

    Testimonial from Anita from Croatia studying Civil and Architectural Engineering, student at Aarhus University

    "It was weird to live here at first. You had to get used to so many new things. But there were a lot of social events, especially during the first week, and everything was organised for us. I met a lot of Danish and international students, and even some from my own country. It was great, and it helped in the beginning, when you feel that you’re completely alone with so many things. I like Aarhus. It's a big city, but it’s also a small town. It’s exactly the right size, I think, to feel at home and comfortable and yet to have all the opportunities you need and want. And I really like the fact that the university is right in the middle of the city."

    Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science

    Testimonial from Angelo from Italy studying Computer Science, student at Aarhus University

    "What really makes Aarhus University unique is the study environment. The lecturers are very open to discuss their subjects during lectures, but they are also available at other times - sometimes you can discuss with them during the local Friday Bar. Most of the programmes facilitate and foster teamwork, which is so much more fun and closer to the actual working environments. Last, but not least important, you have 24/7 access to facilities, including libraries, study rooms, etc., if you want to go the extra mile."
