The PhD Programme
The Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology - DTU Nanotech - is a highly esteemed research institution within the field of micro- and nanotechnology. Applied science, innovation strategies and state-of-the-art technology form our core identity as a scientific institution. We encourage technology transfer and technology development through industry collaboration, and industrial PhD students are an integrated part of our PhD programme.
The Department of Micro- and Nanotechnology offers an attractive international working environment to scientists and students. The staff has diverse scientific backgrounds. More than a third of our staff comes from countries other than Denmark, and about one third of our scientific staff is women. A well-established laboratory infrastructure and a large number of highly qualified technicians at our Department and our neighbouring 1300 m2 cleanroom facilities (DTU Danchip) contribute to the outstanding research environment.
The PhD programme is a three year programme designed to educate researchers at an international level and interplaying with the international research world. The PhD programme consists of a learning process where the PhD student learns to perform research under guidance. The language of instruction is English or Danish.
Who can become a PhD Student?
National as well as international candidates may apply for the programme. We are seeking highly qualified candidates with good grades and a focused interest in research.
