Description

The MSc programme in physics and nanotechnology focuses on physics as the basis of modern technology.

The gap between scientific research and technological breakthroughs is narrowing. Therefore there is a growing need for engineers who can combine solid scientific knowledge with extensive engineering skills.

Study programme focus

The MSc programme in Physics and Nanotechnology covers a wide range of technological, theoretical, and experimental techniques in modern physics. The applications include various topics, such as the development of nanostructured materials with tailor-made electrical, magnetic, optical, mechanical and chemical properties, manufacturing and integration of nano- and micro-components in systems design, modelling of complex biological systems, optical data processing and transfer, and the development of technologies for sourcing, storing, and converting sustainable energy—e.g. fuel cells and hydrogen technology.

In the course of the programme, you must carry out one or more experimental projects as part of a research group at DTU. In this way, you will gain basic theoretical competencies and experience with experimental work. You can prepare your final thesis in collaboration with one of our research groups or industrial partners, and—of course—under the supervision of a DTU professor or lecturer.

Specializations

The ‘Physics and Nanotechnology’ programme allows you to specialize in one of the six study lines:

You should be aware, however, that the choice of courses in the students’ individual study plan offers a high degree of flexibility. Therefore, you have every opportunity to design your own study programme and career by choosing from the wide range of courses offered at DTU.

Other BSc Eng students e.g. from the programme in “Mathematics and Technology” or “Geophysics and space technology” have access to be admitted if the right prerequisites are obtained through the elective courses on the bachelor education.  BSc Engs from other programmes than Physics and Nanotechnology should as a minimum have taken the following courses

01035 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 2 5 point Autumn E2B (Thurs 8-12), Spring F2B (Thurs 8-12)
10044 Physics 2 5 point Autumn E4A (Tues 13-17)
10102 Quantum Mechanics 10 point Spring F4 (Tues 13-17, Fri 8-12)

 

where the course 10044 Physics 2 can be replaced with 10036 Electromagnetism for physicists or 31400 Electromagnetics.

In addition, it is strongly recommended to have completed the course

10303 Condensed Matter Physics and Nanoscale Materials Physics 10 point Autumn E4 (Tues 13-17, Fri 8-12), Spring F4 (Tues 13-17, Fri 8-12)

 

The following central courses on the bachelor are prerequisites for central courses on the master program.  It is therefore recommended that students make sure that they have acquired the necessary prerequisites for the study line they intend to follow by following at least 10 ECTS (preferably more) among the following courses

10347 Introduction to Biophysics 5 point Autumn E5B (Wed 13-17)
33255 Fabrication of micro- and nano structures 5 point Autumn E3A (Tues 8-12)
33257 Visualisation of micro and nano structures 5 point Spring F5A (Wed 8-12)
34020 Optics and photonics 5 point Spring F1B (Thurs 13-17)

International students normally have a background that differ from the typical student at the MSc program, and should be willing to acquire any prerequisites that they may be missing by themselves.

All steps in the admission procedure are handled through DTU’s Office of International Affairs, where inquiries about formalities should be directed. Questions about academic qualifications and program content should be directed to the program coordinator.

General admission requirements

Only applicants holding either a relevant Bachelor of Science in Engineering, a Bachelor in Engineering or a Bachelor of Natural Science degree can be admitted to a Master of Science in Engineering programme. The bachelor degree must be less than 10 years old.

The individual MSc Eng programme states in detail which bachelor programmes qualify and whether applicants have to complete supplementary educational activities.

Requirements for supplementary educational activities can equate to up to 30 ECTS credits and are specified in the form of a list of courses under the individual MSc Eng programmes.

The specific requirements must be met before graduating from the bachelor programme or in connection with conditional admission to a particular MSc Eng programme. The courses must be passed prior to the commencement of studies within one year from the conditional admission.

Supplementary educational activities in connection with conditional admission to an MSc Eng programme do not form part of the MSc Eng programme, and partial tuition fees are charged. If the supplementary courses have not been passed within the deadlines specified, the conditional admission to the programme is withdrawn.

The Master of Science in Engineering programmes are offered in English. Therefore applicants must demonstrate proficiency in English (B-level, IELTS, TOEFL- or Pearson test).

DTU offers Honours Programme as part of all MSc  Eng. programmes. The admission requirements are described at http://www.dtu.dk/english/education/msc/honours-programmes
