Master in Nanotechnology (Master of Science)
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 programme prepares the students for a professional career and ensures that they are able to improve existing products and processes within the organizations they work in, and this on a long-term basis.
This course of studies therefore contributes to the sought-after and highly demanded qualified experts that are needed within the field of nanotechnology. After successful completion one is awarded the academic degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.).
The distance learning master programme "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 computing, 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 for the development of new materials.

Distance and Independent Studies Center (DISC)
Technische Universitaet Kaiserslautern
The Distance and Independent Studies Center is one of the Technische Universitaet Kaiserslautern‘s key scientific institutions. Its tasks comprise the initiation and development of further qualifications for university graduates who have already obtained an initial professional qualification.
The range of measures that are offered in collaboration with the University’s departments and subject areas comprise program, program sequences, and study programs of varying lengths. One of the Center’s key focal points is the provision of distance learning programs, which can be taken on a part-time basis while pursuing a career.
More than 3,800 students are currently enrolled in the distance learning programs of Adult Education, Human Resource Management, School Management, Social Sciences: Organization and Communication, Systemic Management, Organizational Development, Systemic Consulting, Management of Health and Social Institutions, Management of Cultural and Non-Profit Organizations, Economy and Management, Commercial Law for Business Practice, Sustainable Development Cooperation, Software Engineering for Embedded Systems, Medical Physics, Medical Physics and Technology, Structural Fire Protection/ Safety Engineering, Child Psychology: Learning and Learning Disabilities, Nanotechnology and Nanobiotechnology.
Technische Universität Kaiserslautern
As a campus university with around 14,700 students,
the TUK offers approx. 100 future-oriented degree
programmes in twelve departments. The manageable
size of the university also guarantees students
close contact to professors and outstanding support.
The TUK has a lot to offer its students, including a
multitude of attractive degree programmes such
as biophysics, biological or chemical engineering,
food chemistry and engineering mathematics.
degree programmes are interdisciplinary in nature
and therefore unite various disciplines. A degree in
a STEM subject (science, technology, engineering,
mathematics) opens interesting and diverse career
The TUK enjoys an excellent international reputation
in research and teaching. Students and (junior)
scientists benefit from the numerous internationally
renowned research institutions that cooperate
closely with the TUK in the field of applied research.
These include, amongst others, two Fraunhofer institutes,
one Max Planck institute, the German Research
Centre for Artificial Intelligence, and the Institute for
KAISERSLAUTERN, AS A CENTRE FOR SCIENCE, IS ONE
OF THE MOST SIGNIFICANT IT CLUSTERS IN EUROPE
The TUK is a member in the group “Universität
der Großregion - UniGR” (University of the Greater
Region). The other members are the universities in
Lorraine, Liège, Luxembourg, Saarbrücken, and Trier.
This means that TUK students can also benefit from,
e.g., the range of courses offered at the partner universities.
