About the programme

The programme contains a number of advanced level courses, but is dominated by your individual project that after two years will lead up to your Master thesis.

You will be a member of the physics research groups at FSCN (Fiber and Science Network) at Mid Sweden University, who carries out research in the field of nanomaterials and processes. You will be appointed an individual supervisor who will guide you through the work. Together with researchers, you take part in a research project and work both independently and together with others. The projects are typically in the field of materials physics and may include areas lika energy harvesting, energy storage, nanotechnology, thin film technology, etc.

Entry requirements

English course 6/English course B from Swedish Upper Secondary School (Gymnasium) or the equivalent.

Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Science in Engineering or equivalent (at least 180 credits/180 ECTS) in a relevant subject, for example Physics, Engineering Physics, Materials Science or equivalent.

Eligibility for available research project is assessed on the basis of the applicant’s bachelor’s degree project/thesis, a letter of motivation, and, where appropriate, through other documented experience relevant to the subject.
