Course content

Nanotechnology has had a revolutionary influence on the development of novel materials over the last 20 years, and many new types of materials are now available, such as nano-carbon, nano-silica, and nano-magnetics. These materials open new ways of designing advanced devices (sensors, electronics, data and energy storage) as well as improved structural and functional materials.

The course is designed to equip students with the know-how and skills for becoming an expert in materials science with a specialisation in nanotechnology.

We provide a foundation semester in the general area of science and engineering of materials, followed by a nanoscience and nanotechnology-specific semester to give you comprehensive nanomaterials expertise. The course content reflects the highly interdisciplinary nature of this subject and allows students to specialise via options, and a major project.
