Nanostructural Sciences (Bachelor)

This page contains automatically translated content.

Anyone who can subscribe to the appealing idea that the greatest and most spectacular scientific discoveries are possibly possible in the unimaginably small world of nanostructures should consider studying nanostructure science at the University of Kassel.

One nanometer corresponds to one millionth of a millimeter. When several molecules or atoms join together, a nanostructure is formed. The study of these nanostructures is the focus of the degree program, the essential feature of which at the University of Kassel is a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach from the three natural science disciplines of biology, chemistry and physics.

The course lasts six semesters and can be taken up in the winter semester, and concludes with the Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) degree. For optimal preparation, participation in the preliminary courses in mathematics and chemistry is recommended. During the first semesters, students acquire a broad basic knowledge of all three scientific disciplines. They also learn about application areas, fields of activity and research directions in nanostructure science and nanotechnology. Starting in the third and fourth semesters, students can choose at least two of the three natural sciences as a focus: Nanochemistry, Nanophysics or Nanobiology. The language of instruction is German.

Prospective students should have a basic interest in chemistry, physics, biology and mathematics as well as curiosity and perseverance. The effort is worthwhile, because nanostructure science is anything but an "orchid subject". Experts consider this young, globally expanding field of research to be a key discipline of the 21st century. Excellent job prospects therefore arise not only in basic research, but also in application-oriented  areas of the future, such as information and communication technology, materials development or biomedicine.
