Schedule and organization
The standard course duration for part-time, vocational study including exam periods is six semesters. Interrupting one’s studies and returning to complete the program is possible. The course contents are provided as written study materials, developed specifically for distance learning. A weekly commitment of between 15 - 20 hours, depending on one’s previous experience and knowledge acquired, is required to successfully complete the program.
On campus events
One compulsory on campus weekend is held in the first five of the six semesters for all of the participants in the "Nanotechnology" distance learning program. The goal is to focus on and deepen the understanding of the course contents within the scope of lectures, tutorials and internships, to discuss questions that have cropped up regarding the study material and to reflect on the practical implementation of the contents. Written examinations are also a part of these on campus events.
6 Semester. You can apply for the admission-restricted 'Nanotechnology' distance learning degree from mid-May to mid-July of every year. Courses start at the beginning of October.
The program prepares the students for a professional career and ensures that they are able to improve existing products and processes within the organizations they work in, and this on a long-term basis. This course of studies therefore contributes to the sought-after and highly demanded qualified experts that are needed within the field of nanotechnology. After successful completion one is awarded the academic degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.).
Applicants may also be accepted who have relevant work experience but have not graduated for a university. They must hold a diploma qualifying for university admission, be able to prove several years of relevant work experience and pass an aptitude test. Here is additional information about the application process.
This course is held entirely in English – therefore good English language skills are a necessity.
For the enrolment to the English-language Master distance education program "Nanotechnology" a sufficient proof of English proficiency is necessary. More information about the admission requirements and the aptitude test can be found here.
Admission to the course "Nanotechnology" is also possible if one has completed the certificate program "Nanobiotechnology" and the above mentioned eligibility criteria are met.
