O que eu aprenderei?

This Bachelor’s degree programme gives you the best of both worlds. TU Delft has joined forces with Erasmus University Rotterdam to bring you this unique programme. Develop methods and techniques to identify heart failure before it leads to diseases, or develop a microscope that helps analyse vital molecules in living cells. Nano-biology is the study of the complexity of living systems. It employs the methods and principles of Physics to do this in a quantitative way. It is a relatively new area of research that bridges the borders between Physics, Nanophysics, Biology and medical research. The course is suitable for students with a strong interest in both Physics and Biology.

Field of study

  • Technological advances have only recently enabled us to study Biology at nano level.
  • You will be studying at the frontier of an exciting new research field that combines Physics and Biology.
  • You will benefit from the combined expertise of two world class institutions in Delft and Rotterdam.
  • You will have the opportunity to work in state-of-the-art research facilities in a stimulating international environment.


This programme is generally perceived as tough and challenging. Usually approximately six hours per day are scheduled for lectures, tutorials and guided self-study.

Every five weeks, you will complete three or four courses with a final exam. If the course takes ten weeks, a midterm exam will be held in week five. Every course comprises multiple assignments and a final exam which students must pass in order to complete the course.

Approximately 50% of the contact time is in Delft and 50% in Rotterdam. The timetable is designed to avoid needing to travel between the universities on one day.

Career possibilities

Following graduation, you will be a trained, multi-disciplinary analyst and problem solver. You will have learned how to analyse complex problems, such as those that occur in biological systems, and have mastered the quantitative tools needed to address these problems. You will have acquired skills to apply in Nanobiology research areas such as Biomedicine, Synthetic Biology, Optics and Biotechnology either within academia, medical institutions or industry.
