Course content

Nanotechnology represents a fundamental change in the way we interact with the natural world, and is set to deliver major scientific and technological advances.

The massive global investment in nanotechnology means that scientists who are trained to work effectively in an interdisciplinary environment that bridges the diverse fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, biology and engineering, will play a vital role in shaping the future.

Combining interdisciplinary teaching with cutting-edge research, this flagship course will train the next generation of nanotechnologists, and provide the background required for a career in industrial or academic research.
