Course content

The MSc in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology has been developed from the ground up to deliver an interdisciplinary course that will bring you to the cutting edge of nanoscience and nanotechnology. There are extensive links to industry throughout the course and even an option to do a placement in industry for up to a year.

The course is flexible to your mode of study: 2 year full-time with a professional placement (i.e., a year working for an industrial partner).

The course includes modules from Physics and Chemistry to give a well-rounded and comprehensive education in the current state of nanoscience and nanotechnology.

The two-year option with placement satisfies international requirements for an MSc where a single year course might not, but even without the year in industry, the course has elements dedicated to studying current and relevant issues in UK industries that work with nanoscience. All elements of the course are delivered by world-leading researchers.
