MSc Materials Science and Nanotechnology, 120 credits

Materials Physiscs

The Materials Science and Nanotechnology (MSN) master's programme is a competitive education program that specialises students in the area of new materials. The big leap of advances in modern technologies and products in recent decades relies to a large extent on the development of materials science and technology.

The importance of advanced materials in today’s technology is best exemplified by the highly purified semiconductor crystals, which are the basis of the "electronic age". Future implementations and applications of materials in electronics and photonics involve nano-scaled physics, molecular electronics and non-linear optics etc.
