Nanoscience to Nanotechnology
This course covers a broad range of subject areas, from the latest semiconductor fabrication technology through to biological and medical applications, with the emphasis throughout on characterisation and control of materials at the nanoscale. The course covers the techniques necessary for scientific investigation at these very small dimensions, and the very latest research developments in this rapidly evolving area. Students on this course will be able to comprehend the fundamental principles of physics and engineering, which have consequences for nanotechnology, and to gain an understanding of how the general concepts of scientific research are transferred to engineering applications and products.
Normally a 2.2 Honours degree or above in engineering or a relevant discipline. Students whose 1st language is not English require IELTS 6.5 or equivalent (with a minimum 5.5 in each component).
Modules include: strategic project planning; communication skills for research engineers; colloid and interface science; probing at the nanoscale; wide band-gap electronics; soft nanotechnology; nanoscale structures and devices; nanoscale simulation; principles of nanomedicine; bio-nanotechnology; nanophotonics; MSc research project; micro and nano electro-mechanical systems.
