The PhD programme in Applied Micro and Nanosystems is offered by the University College of Southeast Norway. This becomes an increasingly important part of our everyday life, in all sorts of "smart systems", for example sensors integrated into mobile phones, equipment for medical diagnosis, for monitoring the environment and for instrumentation in industrial processes.
Academically it builds on a broad range of engineering and science: Electronics, product design / engineering, material-learning, computer science and chemical processing and basic physics. The research training ranging from design and mathematical modeling with advanced software tools, the manufacturing and characterization of national leader clean room laboratories.
The laboratory at USN, along with complementary laboratories in Oslo and Trondheim,constitutes "NorFab" which is the Research Council's investment in infrastructure. The program is closely linked to industry cluster which exist regionally and nationally. This tight connection to the industry is unique among Norwegian PhD programmes. The programme is part of the research school "Nano Network" with national labor, where USN's role is to focus on integrated, complete systems with direct industrial relevance. Internationally, the academic environment is closely linked to leading research centers in Europe, North America and East Asia.

This programme does not recognise GRE® scores.
The GRE® General Test is a widely administered admissions test that measures the skills needed in today's graduate and business school programs worldwide. The GRE® General Test contains three sections - Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. Three scores are reported: a Verbal Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, a Quantitative Reasoning score on a 130 - 170 score scale in one-point increments, and an Analytical Writing score on a 0 - 6 score scale in half-point increments.
Admission requires master's degree,with a grade of B or better at Masters level and B or better in Master's thesis.
