During your study


Nanobiology uses the language of Mathematics within the context of Physics to understand the complexity of Biology. Unique to this programme, students gain a strong background in fundamental Mathematics, Physics and modern Biology from the very beginning. The aim is for students to foster cross-disciplinary thinking as standard and bridge scientific fields with ease. In addition to the integrated theoretical modules, students are introduced to practical skills in laboratory experimentation and computational modeling.

More information can be found on the TU Delft website.

During the three-year full-time BSc Nanobiology, you will step into the world of a number of different scientific and technological domains. The programme is fundamentally interdisciplinary. You will have the advantage of studying in small groups at both the Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam and the Faculty of Applied Sciences in Delft. Courses taught in parallel will often refer to one another using similar examples or other forms of integration. This will help you put your knowledge in perspective.

Furthermore, the curriculum focuses on two aspects:

  • Nanoscience and Nanophysics as applied to biological systems;
  • a quantitative understanding of Biology as it relates to human health and disease.

The first two study years will emphasize acquisition of knowledge, and in the third year you will have the chance to apply what you have learned.

There are also opportunities to go abroad for your minor in the third year. Moreover there is the opportunity to join the honors programme for ambitious students that look for an extra challenge on top of the curriculum

Study Association Nanobiology Hooke

The Nanobiology Study Association Hooke (abbreviated as S.V.N.B. Hooke) is the study association for Nanobiology students at Delft University of Technology and Erasmus University Rotterdam. The association was founded on November 20, 2014. The aim of the study association is to promote the academic and study interests of Nanobiology students and strengthen the bond among students.

The study association is named after Robert Hooke, the inventor of the word "cell" in biology. S.V.N.B. Hooke has a board of 5 students who work full-time, as well as 16 committees. The association has approximately 450 members, of which 150 members actively participate in organizing and attending activities.

Annually, a first year weekend is organized for incoming first-year Nanobiology students, as well as a week filled with activities to celebrate the association's anniversary, a trip, and numerous career events. Every other year, a major study trip abroad is organized, visiting various universities, institutes, and companies relevant to Nanobiology. Additionally, a symposium is organized where multiple scientists are invited to talk about their research in our field.

Furthermore, S.V.N.B. Hooke is actively involved in evaluating and maintaining the level of education and exploring further education opportunities.
