Reaching the first milestone

In October, SNI Director Professor Christian Schönenberger had the pleasure of attending the bachelor’s degree ceremony and presenting certificates to nanoscience graduates.

Over the last few years, the 24 young scientists have successfully completed a challenging program and learned the fundamentals of physics, chemistry, molecular biology, and mathematics. In addition to numerous lectures and internships, they have also gained extensive practical experience in various research groups as part of their block courses. As master’s students, they now face a choice: They can pursue a master’s in nanoscience, which continues this interdisciplinary focus, or a master’s in physics, chemistry, or molecular biology. Of this year’s graduates, 87.5% decided to pursue the nanoscience master’s program, which offers them broad variety.
