  • Course description
    This programme has been developed jointly by the universities of Leeds and Sheffield in response to demand from graduates of electronic and mechanical engineering programmes for postgraduate study opportunities in the field of nanotechnology. The programme builds on the success of the existing MSc Nanoscale Science & Technology but new modules have been designed to meet the needs of engineering graduates.
    Students take 8 taught modules plus a major research type project.

    The Centre for Self-Organising Molecular Systems (SOMS) at Leeds is a well established interdisciplinary centre for research and education. The SOMS Centre co-ordinates the University’s nanotechnology degree programmes, which include a 3-year BSc degree, and a total of 3 inter-related nanotechnology Masters programmes. All 3 MSc courses are delivered in partnership with the University of Sheffield. MSc modules are delivered by internationally recognised nanotechnology researchers from the chemistry, materials, physics and electronics disciplines.

    The Centre for Self-Organising Molecular Systems is an interdisciplinary research centre which was established in 1993 to focus on exploiting biological-like self-assembly to engineer nanoscale materials and devices with applications in sensing, optoelectronics, tissue engineering and drug delivery.

    The Centre’s work involves chemists, physicists, biologists and engineers working side-by-side. This helps to break down the disciplinary barriers to research and thus provides a unique postgraduate training environment appropriate to the challenges of the new millennium.
