This programme is designed to provide students with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of nanoscience and its potential environmental and human health-related risk. It focuses on the fundamental and underpinning science but also discusses applications, synthesis and policy, and regulatory responses. The MRes is a research-focused Masters course with a large part devoted to an independent but supervised research project, carried out in state-of-the-art-laboratories.
Key features of the programme are:
- Coverage of nanoscience and its implications
- Focused teaching and learning modules
- Experimental, field based or modelling research project
The programme is a collaborative endeavour between the Environmental Health Science group in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Biosciences. Taught and research elements are undertaken concurrently.
