1. Double degree honours programme Nanomaterials (180 EC)
To be eligible to this honours programme, the student must be admitted and has to be currently registered for the degree in Physics and Chemical Sciences.
2. Debye Honours Programme (135 EC)
The Debye honours programme builds on top of the regular Nanomaterials Science programme, and is aimed at the top 10-20% of students in the programme. The honours programme is selective and extends the normal 120 EC to 135 EC.
Honours students take one additional course of 7.5 EC showing their interdisciplinary affinity with other science fields and execute an internship abroad at an outstanding research laboratory.
Research part (60 EC)
52.5 EC of the research will be devoted to a research project including the master’s thesis, as in the regular programme. However, in order to obtain the honours degree the student will additionally be involved in one of the two following options:
PhD proposal: 7.5 EC can be spent on writing a PhD proposal of a topic to be freely chosen by the honours student. Supervision and coaching will be provided by two senior staff members who should be from different groups. This proposal is eligible to compete in the Debye Graduate Program.
Research paper: Alternatively, 7.5 EC can be spent on writing a research paper as a first author for an international peer-reviewed journal using the results of the master research project or the internship project, that should be ready up for submission. Supervision and coaching will be provided to guide the student through this process.
Active participation in a conference/symposium will be encouraged if conference dates correspond to the period in which the research project is performed and the results are ready to be presented.
