Advanced Applications of Nanotechnology (20 ECTS)

2018/2019

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project on the 3rd semester can either be a normal semester project of up to 30 ECTS or can be combined with the Master’s thesis to a Long Master’s Thesis. In case of a separate project, the scope of the project can vary between 15, 20, 25, and 30 ECTS dependent on how many elective courses are chosen by the student. A Long Master’s Thesis can also vary between 45, 50, and 60 ECTS dependent on how many elective courses are taken by the student.

If the project is less than 30 ECTS the workload of the project is reduced in accordance to the number of ECTS.

This project module will give the student experience with independently applying nanotechnology within a chosen technological area.
