Technology

A masters is earned after students complete an undergraduate degree program. To obtain a masters, you usually need to complete 12 to 18 college courses that often involve completing comprehensive tests and/or a thesis.

One of the greatest aspects of technology is that when it is embedded in machines and devices, most of the time the individual operating the machine or device does not need to understand the specifics of how the technology works. For example, someone using a computer does not need to understand the mechanics of the hard drive to benefit from using it.

Norway (Norge) is the westernmost, northernmost — and in fact the easternmost — of the three Scandinavian countries. Norway is well known for its amazing and varied scenery. The fjords in the west of the country are long narrow inlets, flanked on either side by tall mountains where the sea penetrates far inland. The ultimate responsibility for the education lies with the Norwegian Ministry of Education and Research.

Masters in Technology in Rauland in Norway. Master in Micro and Nano Systems Technology The most spectacular technology is happening at the micro and nano level and you can become an expert of this state of the art technology. We offer you a master's degree program within Micro and Nano Systems Technology, which will open doors to exciting jobs in many different branches. The master's degree in Micro and Nano Systems Technology is a two-year study program that is interdisciplinary with elements from electronics, mechanics, physics, chemistry, mathematics, modeling, and process technology. The aim of the study is to qualify successful candidates for a working environment in the diverse Micro and Nano Systems Technology; in industry as well as in academia, research institutions and governmental agencies. The studies cover the entire production chain, including design, manufacturing and characterization of micro and nano systems. Why study Micro- and Nano Systems Technology? The program is unique, exciting and practically oriented and is an excellent offer for those who already have a bachelor's degree in engineering or science. The basis of the study program is the corresponding research community at USN, that constitutes one of the three intellectual junctions for Norway’s efforts in micro- and nanotechnology, with extended collaboration with industry, academia and research institutions; regionally, nationally and internationally. We have good laboratory facilities and spacious, clean rooms, as well as established collaboration with industries that focus on research and development. Where can I work? Typical jobs: Within companies developing and producing microelectronic and micro- and nanosystems: Product development Production technology development Production management Quality management Project leader Within companies working with micro- and nanotechnology: Business development Marketing and sales Project leader Research and development Technical consultation At universities or research institutions: PhD Collaboration with the industry During the study there is several visits to electronics and microtechnology companies in the Horten area and experts from the industry are invited guest lecturers on selected topics. USN is working closely with companies and research institutes and has at all times various research projects on-going. The final project in your study is carried out in this research collaboration and several students are also offered summer job in companies. Take parts of your study abroad Micro- and nanotechnology is an international field of research. The master's degree program has an international character, with students and teachers that come from many countries. We collaborate with research communities both within Norway and abroad (Europe, USA and Asia). The collaborating institutions include, among others, Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC) at the University of California at Berkeley (USA), Heriot-Watt University (Edinburgh, UK), Xiamen University (China). This makes it possible for you, as a master's degree student, to take parts of the study program at this world-leading centre within micro- and nanotechnology. Post degree studies The graduate students will achieve a sound foundation for further doctoral degree studies (PhD) at USN or at other universities anywhere in the world. [-]
