Nanotechnology (MSc)

Dieser Studiengang wird nur in englischer Sprache angeboten.
What is the degree program about?

The consecutive Master's degree program in Nanotechnology (four semesters) was set up at FAU in the winter semester 2011/2012.

Due to the strong engineering focus, the FAU degree program distinguishes itself from programmes at other universities which tend to concentrate on physics and related subjects. A key role in the degree programme is played by the Cluster of Excellence 'Engineering of Advanced Materials', which focuses almost exclusively on nanotechnology. It was established at FAU in 2007 as part of the Excellence Initiative of the German Federal Government.

The consecutive Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes provide training in an academic environment with a strong international focus. Graduates are able to develop nanotechnology products and can work in the field of nanotechnology, both in industry and at research institutions.

Admission requirements

Applicants must have an above-average Bachelor's degree in nanotechnology. Applicants with a degree in a related subject or a non-equivalent degree can only be admitted to the Master's degree program after passing an oral admission examination.

You can apply online via the application portal application portal campo. Further information about the application procedure

Structure of the program

The four-semester Master's degree program builds on students' previous knowledge of nanotechnology and research methods. It consists of four compulsory modules in nanotechnology and electives from the areas of materials science, sciences and engineering, and nanotechnology.

Compulsory modules:

  • Nanomechanics
  • Nanocharacterisation
  • Bionanotechnology
  • Molecular Nanotechnology

The elective modules can be selected from a wide range of subjects to allow students to choose those modules they are most interested in.
