Cross-departmental DTU research
At DTU Nanotech we are highly committed to educating Bachelor, Master and PhD students within the field of nanotechnology and its many application areas at DTU’s educations.
Our Faculty has intensively built up its knowledge of didactics and our course evaluations show a high level of student satisfaction.
Below you will find a description of all the types of education, in which DTU Nanotech takes part.
Master and Bachelor education
DTU Nanotech is actively involved in a number of DTU’s educations:
We provide 10 Master courses and 13 Bachelor courses. To spread knowledge on micro- and nanotechnology to other scientific fields across the university we seek to develop the collaboration with other departments at DTU. Teachers from DTU Nanotech thus participate in presently nine further courses given by other DTU departments.
Here is a list of all the courses with DTU Nanotech participation.
Each year, researchers at DTU Nanotech supervise more than 70 Bachelor and Master Projects. Many of these projects are done in cooperation with the industry or with other departments at DTU.
Our project catalogue (shown in the left column) gives a complete overview of the exciting master, bachelor and 3-week projects available to students who want to participate in the research in micro- and nanotechnology at DTU Nanotech.
Clean room education
Teaching in micro- and nanofabrication is an important activity at DTU Nanotech and we provide and promote education in micro- and nanofabrication to all lines of study at DTU. DTU Nanotech has currently a full range of courses in this field and will continue to develop this line of courses.
The courses cover all aspects of design and fabrication of micro- and nanostructures and provide the students with a solid theoretical foundation and understanding of the technology. This is complemented by practical training in the clean room where students learn how to fabricate and characterise micro- and nanostructures. This practical training is an important part of the Bachelor and Master projects where students typically are able to cover the full process cycle of design, fabrication, characterisation, and use of micro- and nanostructures.
PhD student at DTU Nanotech
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. Our research spans four strategic research fields. We encourage technology transfer and technology development through industry collaboration and industrial PhD students are an integrated part of our PhD programme.
DTU Nanotech offers an attractive international working environment to scientists and students and we have around 90 PhD students of which half comes from abroad. A well-established laboratory infrastructure, an open and cross disciplinary work culture at our department, and our neighbouring 1300 m2 clean room 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.
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.
