About the Programme

The leap between research and the realisation of new products is steadily becoming smaller. Furthermore, high added value technology is becoming the key to success in a globalised world.
Therefore, companies operating on the technological leading edge need candidates who are capable of combining a solid theoretical background in physics with practical experience in state-of-the art technologies in inter-disciplinary projects.

In this programme you choose to specialise in: 
Acoustics and Signal Processing  Acoustics is the science of sound and covers a very broad area of knowledge which is connected to several fields of science and technology. More specifically, we will focus on technologies such as microphones and loudspeakers, signal treatment, mechanical vibrations in industry, and hearing aids. Acoustics is also closely linked with the subjective perception of sound such as in the acoustic design of rooms, noise or music. Traditionally, Denmark has a strong international position in acoustics and we offer many possibilities for company collaboration and future jobs in acoustics.

Optics, Sensors and Nanotechnology Optics is the science of light and colour. Especially during the past thirty years, optics has developed rapidly. The most significant reason for this ‘optical revolution’ is the invention and development of the many different lasers which are on the market today. The primary focus of the programme is the interaction between light and materials, nanophysics, sensors, nanotechnology, molecular physics and spectroscopy.
