Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary science to a large extent. It combines the laws of physics, chemical processes and biological principles with one another at the nanoscale level. The high level of interdisciplinarity leads to the necessity that scientists need to acquire additional skills and knowledge, for example in the fields of characterization techniques, nanooptics, nanoelectronics, nanomaterials and biotechnology.
The target group of this program is first and foremost professionals who are already working in industry, research institutes, universities and clinics, both nationally as well as abroad. The requirement for being admitted to this 3-year master program is a completed undergraduate course of studies in either engineering, science, pharmacy or medicine, taken at a university or polytechnic / university of applied science.
