What you Learn

Required Learning Outcomes

On completion of the programme the candidate should have the following learning outcomes defined in terms of knowledge, skills and general competence:

Knowledge

The candidate 

  • can explain central qualitative and quantitative models important  for nanotechnology, particularly within physics and chemistry.
  • can give examples of nanotechnological products and processes and explain how wanted and unwanted features are determined by structures and processes on the nano scale.
  • can follow established protocols for synthesis and characterization of nano-structured materials in agreement with best practice in laboratory safety.
  • has  a solid general scientific understanding and basic knowledge within physics, chemistry, mathematics and informatics

Skills

The candidate 

  • can discuss nanoscientific phenomena and the connection between the structure and the properties using models from the basic natural sciences and mathematics.
  • can use modern scientific analysis instruments in nanotechnology.
  • can follow established protocols for synthesis and characterization of nano-structured materials in agreement with best practice in laboratory safety.
  • can, in a systematic and reproducible manner, investigate and characterize the properties of a given system, and interpret the results with respect to a relevant theoretical framework.
  • Can interpret, evaluate and compare information and data on nanotechnologigal systems
  • Can use data programming in solving basic problems in nanotechnology
  • Can present, both orally and in writing, the results from one's own investigations

General competence

The candidate 

  • can plan and execute practical laboratory work and use scientific instruments
  • can execute and describe experiments in accordance with scientific standards, and interpret the results achieved through experiments
  • shows awareness on the quality of one's own and others work, and can apply common tools in quality assurance
  • has a high awareness towards questions regarding health, environment and safety (HES) and have good routines for safe work
  • can gather trustworthy information and apply this to broaden and develop one¿s own competence
