As a graduate student in Nanoscience, you will learn to exploit your knowledge within the fields of physics, chemistry and biology to understand nanoscopic systems in detail. Nanoscience is an interdisciplinary field, and this MSc programme gives you the competences to work with many different scientific methodologies and techniques in new and unconventional ways.

As a graduate student in Nanoscience, you can work with, among other things, the measuring techniques of physics, such as X-rays and electronics, or you can study the ability of proteins to catalyse chemical processes.

You can also choose to specialise within another topical field of study. The overall objective is for you to obtain knowledge and insight into the many areas and methodologies of nanotechnology so that you can work independently and professionally in the field.

North Campus


North Campus

With the Copenhagen University Hospital (Rigshospitalet) as the next door neighbour, the Faculty of Science and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences are very well placed in the North Campus. North Campus is an ideal setting for interdisciplinary reseach fields. Massive investments in research infrastructure, including the construction of the Niels Bohr Building and the Maersk Building,  are currently being made to develop the area around the North Campus into Copenhagen Science City. North Campus is very centrally located and transport links are excellent. Many students and teacher  also use their bike, and biking in Copenhagen is easy and convenient.
