Course content

Nanoscale Science and Technology research students in nanoLAB cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. This gives you the chance to thrive on interdisciplinary challenges, collaborate with industrial partners and even create your own spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.
MPhil and PhD supervision is available in:
  • micro and nanoscale design, fabrication, manufacturing and manipulation
  • top-down and bottom-up fabrication
  • nanoscale materials and electronics
  • applications of nano and microelectronics in medical science, including cell biology, neuroscience, human genetics and ageing
  • polymers
  • self-assembly
  • chemistry of nanoscale systems
  • biomolecular engineering - microfluids, bioprobes and biosensor systems, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and devices.

Information for international students

Direct Entry : IELTS 6.5 overall (with a minimum of 5.5 in all sub-skills). If you have lower English Language scores, you may be accepted onto a Pre-sessional English Language course. You may need an ATAS (Academic Technology Approval Scheme) clearance certificate.
