Structure of the education

Each academic year consists of two semesters which are 20 weeks each, and each semester is further divided into two study periods.

The program spans over two years, where the first three semesters are devoted to course work, whereas the final semester is aimed for the diploma work. The courses are either compulsory or eligible, where the specific choice in the latter case provides a possibility for profiling towards Nanoelectronics or Nanomaterials. The nanomaterials track offers an opportunity for a sustainability profile. Courses with such learning outcomes are also optional for the Nanoelectronics track and are included in the compulsory course Introduction to Nanotechnology. The fourth semester is dedicated for the thesis project.


The programme is course-based. Lists of courses are included in Appendix 1: Course list

Grading system

Courses in the first and the second cycle are graded on a scale from A to F. A-E are passing grades, A is the highest grade. The grades pass (P) and fail (F) are used for courses under certain circumstances.

Grading scale is found in the course syllabus.

Conditions for participation in the programme

Degree project

The degree project is the final part of the education. The project work may begin when special admission requirements for the course are fulfilled.


Degree is entitled “Teknologie masterexamen” - Master of Science. The main field of study is stated in the text on the degree certificate. The text on the degree certificate states the educational programme, Nanotechnology, completed by the student.
