Study Nanosciences in Germany

Explore 44 programmes.

Nanotech can be found in a wide variety of products: in computer hard drives or solar cells, as food additives, or in sunscreen with high SPF. These nanomaterials are always very small: a maximum of 100 nanometres, with a nanometre corresponding to one billionth of a metre. In a nanosciences degree programme, you will deal with producing, analysing, and applying functional structures and dimensions of the magnitude.

What content can I expect

The nanosciences are a young and future-oriented branch of the natural sciences. They are built on the basics of other natural and engineering sciences, e.g., chemistry, physics, and electrical engineering. During the course of your studies, you will also acquire necessary skills in quantum mechanics, nuclear physics, or nanostructure physics to transfer nanoscientific materials into industrial manufacturing practice and mass production.
Several areas of study belong to the field of nanosciences, including:

  • Nanoanalysis
  • Nanochemistry
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Nanomaterials
  • Nanotechnology

A course of study in nanosciences is a good fit for people with a broad interest in the natural sciences who want to acquire interdisciplinary skills in the natural sciences. As a graduate, you have promising career perspectives, as the nanosciences are becoming increasingly important in modern industry, regardless of the specific sector. Whether in medical technology, environmental technology, the automotive industry, microelectronics, or energy technology: Nanoscientists are in demand everywhere.

Check your eligibility to study at German higher education institutions (non-binding)

Run a quick and non-binding check to determine whether your certificates make you eligible to study at German higher education institutions. Depending on which educational certificates you provide, you may qualify for all degree programmes or only for certain subjects or types of higher education institutions. It is possible that you do not currently meet the requirements to be eligible to apply to a German higher education institution. In such a case, you may be able to attend a Studienkolleg. Please note that the eligibility check results apply exclusively to undergraduate programmes and are not legally binding.

Once you have completed the non-binding check, degree programmes that match your eligibility will be marked with a corresponding icon.
