Optics, Sensors and Nanotechnology is one of two specialisations available to master students in the field of Physics and Technology

During your studies, you will find the answer to why and how the technology works – and you will use that knowledge to develop, for example, optically based faster computers or new optical measurement methods for diagnosing cancer, or ultra-sensitive sensors capable of detecting the presence of just a few molecules of narcotics or explosives.

Programme structure

This is a two-year master degree. To study a master degree in Optics, Sensors and Nanotechnology, you must have a relevant bachelor degree (three years of the previous study at university level within a similar field).

Many different career options

With a degree in Physics and Technology, you will have a range of job opportunities – in Denmark and abroad. Among other things, you could work as a researcher or developer in the optics, sensor technology or material design industry or at universities.

It is also possible to continue on a three-year research programme which will lead to a PhD degree. Another option is to study an industrial research programme which is carried out in close cooperation with a company where you are employed.

Graduates who have completed this master programme are entitled to use the title of Master of Science (MSc) in Engineering (Physics and Technology).

Study environment

Each year more than 1500 international students from all over the world choose to study at the University of Southern Denmark, so you will become part of a lively international student environment.

We believe that engineers of today must have a global perspective and experience and we encourage international as well as Danish students to spend one or two semesters abroad as an intern in a company or as an exchange student at a partner university.

The Faculty of Engineering has adopted a student-centred approach to learning, and teaching is based on problem-based project work. Students participate significantly in class and carry out project work in small teams.

Entry requirements

1. A bachelor's degree in Physics, Mechatronics, Electrical Engineering, Electronical Engineering or Power Engineering provided your academic qualifications correspond with those of a bachelor in Physics and Technology from the University of Southern Denmark.

2. English language skills.
