  • Academic Title
    Nanoscale Science and Technology (Nanotechnology) Masters
  • Course description
    To provide a coherent interdisciplinary programme which will enable graduates of single-discipline degree schemes to contribute to research, development and commercial applications of nanotechnology. Arguably the most successful nanotechnology taught postgraduate programme in Europe. It covers the breadth of nanotechnology from electronics to biotechnology and is delivered by academics with internationally leading research programmes. It is the only course of its kind in the UK i.e. jointly delivered.

    Students take 8 lecture based 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.
