MSc, PgDip, PgCert
Suitable for science and engineering graduates with an interest in the development of ultra precision and nanoengineered surfaces and their applications.
Takes you on to careers in a range of international research and industry sectors which are dependent on ultra precision and nanoengineering. Our significant industrially supported research allows access to a range of aerospace, space, medical, optics, optoelectronics, energy generation, displays, telecommunications, and semiconductor orientated companies.
You will be taught by internationally leading experts from within Cranfield’s Precision Engineering Centre, a NASA approved supplier for space telescope mirrors, with additional modules from the Microsystems and Nanotechnology Centre, the Centre for Energy and Renewable Technologies, and Cranfield School of Management.
The next generation of products for energy production, medical diagnostics, aerospace, space, displays, telecommunications, semiconductor devices, optics and optoelectronics demand ultra precision engineering of surfaces, down to the nanoscale, to achieve their superior functionality.
The MSc in Ultra Precision and Nanoengineering has been designed to equip engineers and scientists with the knowledge, skills, and practical experience that allow next generation high technology products and processes to be realised.
Students will study the essential aspects of ultra precision technologies and nanoengineering including the philosophy of determinism, fundamental precision design and metrology principles, critical computer-based design and application tools, and detailed knowledge of ultra precision and nanoengineering processes. Many applications of the technology are addressed, with particular emphasis on optics, renewable energy generation (solar, wind, wave), medical diagnostics, space and aerospace.
Students benefit from access to the best equipped precision machining laboratories in Europe, includ
