This course utilises the facilities in the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre, which has a state-of-the-art nanotechnology laboratory suite (500m2) housing cutting-edge fabrication and characterisation facilities. As a student on the MSc Nanoscience to Nanotechnology course, you will cover a broad range of subject areas, from the latest semiconductor fabrication technology through to biological and medical applications, with the emphasis throughout on characterisation and control of materials on the nanoscale.
The growth of nanotechnology is one of the most exciting developments in science and engineering in recent years. Much of the research in this field is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing expertise from different areas across the life science, physical science and engineering disciplines.
This course covers the techniques necessary for scientific investigation at these very small dimensions, and the very latest research developments in this rapidly evolving area.
As a student on this course, you be able to comprehend the fundamental principles of physics and engineering, which have consequences for nanotechnology, and to gain an understanding of how the general concepts of scientific research are transferred to engineering applications and products.
This MSc will also enable you to apply appropriate techniques for designing, imaging and evaluating nanostructures, whilst gaining a knowledge of mathematic models and their application within a research project through interpreting quantitative and qualitative data.
This course is suitable for those who want to develop an understanding of the techniques available to fabricate and investigate nanoscale structures, and to be able to present, understand, evaluate, and interpret qualitative and quantitative data, develop arguments and make judgements based on fundamental concepts of nanoscale engineering.
The modules on this course can also be studied as stand-alone modules for those who are in employment seeking professional development or further knowledge in particular subject fields.
