Nanosystems Engineering

Nanosystems Engineering

The study line in nanosystems engineering focuses on the “top-down” design and fabrication of nano- and microsystems for use in research and industrial applications. Students following the program are trained in state-of the-art nano- and micro fabrication technologies in a combination of theory, simulation, and device fabrication in the Nanolab clean room facility at DTU, and device characterization in our modern laboratory facilities. Topics include sensors, actuators, sensor-systems and -networks, engineering of surface wetting properties, nano-bio handling and detection, nanofluidics, nanophotonics, nano-electronics, nanomanipulation, and nano/microfabrication
