Nanoscience > Programme Structure
The courses, like all teaching at the Faculty of Science, are organised in blocks. Each block equals nine weeks and counts as 15 ECTS.
"The Master's thesis project is an independent experiment-based and/or theoretical course of study of one or more problems relating to nanotechnology." This is how the Master's thesis project is defined in the formal curriculum. In practice, the work takes place in one of the research groups at Nano-Science Center where everyone works on different aspects of a relatively specific topic. There is a thesis supervisor who is responsible for ensuring the feasibility of the project and for assistance if needed.
On a day-to-day basis, the work takes place in close collaboration with other graduate students, sometimes with BSc students and with older, more experienced PhD students and postdocs. As a graduate student, you will be responsible for and gain experience in specific sub-projects dealing with and conducting an experimental measurement programme or a theoretical calculation. In Nanoscience, you are also able to do your thesis as part of an R&D team in the private sector. The working methods here are often the same as at the University, and in any case, your supervisor will ensure that the academic content is of a high standard of quality.
It is also possible to study abroad during your degree. You can choose to study abroad one or two semesters or for a shorter period of time; e.g. take a summer school course.
