Aerosol technology

For a sustainable future

Healthy air – both indoors and outdoors – is important in our daily lives, but also when we address societal challenges such as sustainable cities, clean energy production and reduced impact on the climate. Aerosol technology addresses key questions related to air quality, such as: formation of air pollution, particle dynamics, aerosol chemistry, and nanotoxicology. It also includes studies on biological particles, airborne disease transmission, and the development of novel medical applications. 

Aerosol technology at Design sciences

The division Ergonomics and Aerosol Technology conducts research which involves several of these key issues. We have access to a world-leading aerosol laboratory which is situated at Ingvar Kamprad Design Center (IKDC) and shared with nuclear physics. The research is often cross-disciplinary and performed in collaboration with expertise in medicine, combustion sciences, occupational exposure, and nanotechnology.

Master thesis topics in aerosol technology

You have different options for choosing your project – check the list of available master's degree projects at Design sciences or contact us to discuss possibilities. You can propose your own topic or get input from our researchers on possibilities in the field of aerosol technology. 

Your research topic should preferably connect to one of the following themes:

  • Characterization of air pollution and source apportionment
  • Indoor air
  • Workplace emissions and exposures
  • Air pollution toxicology
  • Air pollution from a global health and sustainability perspective
  • Nanosafety
  • Bioaerosols, lung deposition, medical applications
