Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy

**Why choose this course** Could atoms and molecules hold the secret to saving our planet? Our MSc in Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy will allow you to discover the practical implementation of nanoscience and quantum engineering, nanomaterials, and nanotechnology for renewable energy generation and storage. You will be taught by internationally-recognised experts in the University's Advanced Technology Institute, and gain specialised skills through an individual research project within our research groups, using the latest advanced equipment and facilities. **What you will study** Our MSc in Nanotechnology and Renewable Energy focuses on the practical implementation of nanoscience and quantum engineering, nanomaterials and nanotechnology for renewable energy. Our course covers the fundamentals behind nanotechnology and moves on to discuss its implementation using nanomaterials - such as graphene, carbon nanotubes, 2D materials, and perovskite solar cells. You will discover the use of advanced nanotechnology tools which allow us to see things at a nanoscale, and learn about future trends and applications for energy generation and storage. Completion of the course will provide you with the essential skills you need to advance your career in this rapidly emerging field.
