Het BIO/NANO programma, een tweejarige opleiding van 120 ECTS-punten, volgt de algemene structuur van de MSc Applied Physics. Dit omvat een kernvak van rekenkundige en wiskundige fysica, verplichte specialisatiecursussen, vrije keuzevakken en traject keuzevakken, een stage en een afstudeerproject.

Verplichte vakken

Alle studenten in het BIO/NANO programma moeten twee specialisatiecursussen van 5 studiepunten volgen. Dit zijn:

  • Condensed matter at the nanoscale 
  • Biomolecules and soft matter 

BIO/NANO keuzevakken

The track electives for the BIONANO program are:  

  • Polymer physics 
  • Landau theory and the statics and dynamics of phase transitions  
  • Organic electronics  
  • Molecular photophysics  
  • Nano spintronics  
  • Nanomagnetism 
  • Advanced single molecule microscopy 
  • Molecular biosensing 
  • Nanophotonics  
  • Semiconductor nanophysics 
  • Computational materials science
