Taught and Reseach

Format: Campus

Program Description:

The growth of nanotechnology is one of the most exciting developments in science and engineering in recent years. This MRes degree covers a broad range of subject areas, from the latest semiconductor fabrication technology, to biological and medical applications, with the emphasis throughout on characterisation and control of materials at the nanoscale

Research in nanotechnology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing expertise from different areas across the life science, physical science and engineering disciplines.

The focus of this programme is on both the techniques necessary for scientific investigation at these very small dimensions and the very latest research developments in this rapidly evolving area.

A key part of this programme is the ability to gain hands-on experience of state-of-the-art fabrication and characterisation techniques.

The MRes consists of formal lectures, plus a project of individual research that takes place in the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre at the College of Engineering.
