The target group of this program is first and foremost professionals who are already working in industry, research institutes, universities and clinics, both nationally as well as abroad. The requirement for being admitted to this 3-year master program is a completed undergraduate course of studies in either engineering, science, pharmacy or medicine, taken at a university or polytechnic / university of applied science. Relevant working experience of at least one year has to be proven when applying for admission. With the application for acceptance to the distance learning course "Nanotechnology" one also has to hand in a written confirmation that a fitting institution is willing to supervise the applicant's master thesis topic. An attestation of the institution must be submitted to the Student's Administration Office by the end of the fourth semester.
Admission to the course "Nanotechnology" is also possible if one has completed the certificate program "Nanobiotechnology" and the above mentioned eligibility criteria are met.
Applicants may also be accepted who have relevant work experience but have not graduated for a university. They must hold a diploma qualifying for university admission, be able to prove several years of relevant work experience and pass an aptitude test.  
This course is held entirely in English – therefore good English language skills are a necessity.
For the enrolment to the English-language Master distance education program "Nanotechnology" a sufficient proof of English proficiency is necessary.  

Über den Studiengang

Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary science to a large extent. It combines the laws of physics, chemical processes and biological principles with one another at the nanoscale level. The high level of interdisciplinarity leads to the necessity that scientists need to acquire additional skills and knowledge, for example in the fields of characterization techniques, nanooptics, nanoelectronics, nanomaterials and biotechnology.
The distance learning master program "Nanotechnology" encompasses a basic course of studies of one semester, focus studies that take four semesters and the master thesis itself for which one semester is planned. The fields of study include amongst others: Semiconductor theories, quantum information processing, characterization techniques of nanostructures, screening methods in biology, nanooptics, biomaterials for transplants, processing ceramics and composites, using nanoparticles in medicine and pharmaceutics, nanoelectronics and nanomagnetism. The topics being taught are oriented on the possible career fields and working areas of the participants in the course. These include the semiconductor and electronics industries, the IT sector, the automotive sector, the chemical industry, biotechnology companies, optics and laser technology, the pharmaceutical industry, medicine and medical technology and the development of new materials.
Application and Costs
You can apply for the admission-restricted "Nanotechnology" distance learning degree from mid-May to mid-July of every year. Courses start at the beginning of October. The documentation is also available as download and submission as a written application. 
The study fees for the master distance learning program "Nanotechnology" are EUR 820 per semester, plus the registration fee, as well as a one-time Master‘s examination fee for the standard period of study.
Financial Aid
The government can support you in financing your studies with individual tax incentives. Based on your personal rate of taxation and your professional situation, you can, for example, offset the costs as professional or special expenses. Please get in touch with your local revenue office or tax advisor for more information. In certain circumstances, the federal government or the state governments can also support you in your professional training with so-called training and qualification cheques (Bildungs- und Qualifizierungschecks). Information on this can be found online, for example at www.bildungspraemie.info.
Employers are often also willing to contribute to the costs of training for their workforce. A further funding possibility are low-interest bank loans geared specifically to funding training courses and which are offered by the government and by banks, such as the KfW Development Bank. Financial support according to Germany's Social Security Code (SBG III) or the Federal Education and Training Assistance Act (BAföG) is unfortunately not possible.
