About this program
Master's Program in Electronics and Nanotechnology
The Master’s Program in Electronics and Nanotechnology offers the opportunity for students to go into the details of future-shaping and globally significant technologies. We are surrounded by wireless technologies everywhere through the rise of mobile devices, space technology is skyrocketing in the form of small satellites, and nanotechnology is enabling major breakthroughs in fields like solar energy harvesting. This program focuses strongly on researching and building hardware for these technologies, paving the way for a fluent shift towards a career in the industry or an academic postgraduate path.
For admission to the Electronics and Nanotechnology program, a high‐quality Bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, in physics, or in a related field is required. Excellent candidates with degrees in other fields such as information systems, engineering, natural sciences, or mathematics, will be considered if they can show to have acquired sufficient skills and knowledge.
Background requirements depend on the chosen study field within the program. Recommended background includes sufficient skills in
- basic programming skills
Students chosen to the program may be required to complement their earlier degree with complementary studies. The admission letter will provide information on any such requirements. The complementary studies cannot be included in the Master's degree but will be required for graduation.

Students can approach their engineering studies from both industrial and scientific perspectives. They can direct their studies either towards a theoretically-oriented manner or more hands-on practical applications. Thus, the program is a combination of theoretical and practical courses that consist of lectures, independent exercises, computer simulations, laboratory work and group assignments.
The studies are closely connected to current research in the relevant field as all majors are linked to ongoing research within various research groups in the departments. There are four majors, i.e. specification areas, offered by the program:
- Micro- and nanoelectronic circuit design
- Microwave engineering
- Photonics and nanotechnology
- Space science & technology

Scholarships & funding
Several scholarship options are available. For more information, please visit the university website.
For non-EU/EEA citizens: €15000/year
Upon completion of the program, students will graduate with a Master of Science (Technology) degree.
Graduates from the program typically embark on their globally-oriented careers in research and development-focused tasks, and eventually shifting towards different industry expert positions based on individual preferences. Resulting from the very research-based studies, a very popular option is to continue the studies as a researcher and a graduate student towards a doctoral degree. Some graduates also start their own companies or get employed in high-growth hardware startups in the field. Overall, employment rates for fresh graduates are extremely good as many companies within the industry are actively involved already during their studies.
Aalto University has well-established career services through which you can get employed in Finland and abroad. Aalto students tend to find good positions with ease upon graduation.
