  • Course description
    ABOUT THE PROGRAMME

    Nanotechnology is a new area of materials science that is revolutionising the development of novel designer technology. It is concerned with manipulation at the nanometre scale – from 1–10 nanometres – to develop and characterise materials with very special properties. These materials find potential and applications in many technological areas such as electronics, dispersions and coatings, sensors, liquid crystals, ceramics and biotechnology.

    The design, development, characterisation and application of smart and clean materials is a rapidly growing multidisciplinary activity which has enormous economic, social and environmental benefits – and leads to worldwide employment opportunities.

    COURSE CONTENT
    In semester one, you choose three modules from Forensic Science and Analytical Techniques, Advanced Organic Chemistry, Advanced Inorganic Chemistry 2, Advanced Analytical Chemistry and Hot Topics in Physical Chemistry, designed to give a broad and balanced understanding of the most important developments in modern chemistry.

    In semester two, you use key research tools – such as online information retrieval – to learn about the background and the planning behind your chosen research project. In addition, you develop a specialist knowledge of nanotechnology through the Topics in Nanotechnology and Advanced Topics in Nanotechnology modules. In semester three, you complete an advanced nanotechnology research project culminating in a Masters-level thesis and an oral presentation of your research successes.
