Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

The project is designed to cover a broad range of topics. It can be a theoretical or an experimental project dealing with all aspects relevant for manufacturing and engineering of biological/organic nanostructures.

Learning objectives


• must have knowledge about how to design, model and manufacture different biological/organic nanostructures
• must be able to understand the fundamental concepts of engineering and design of nanostructures based on organic/biological systems


• must be able to apply the design, engineering and manufacturing concepts in order to predict and fabricate the desired organic or bio-nanostructures
• must be able to evaluate the different methods used for production, design, and engineering of nanobiostructures


• must have obtained the skills to design, model, fabricate and characterize nano-scale (bio)structures
