This course explores the frontiers of science on the nanoscale. It provides a strong grounding in basic nanoscience before progressing to advanced topics.
Taught classes have been developed from the many years of nanoscience research at the University in areas such as: nanoscale imaging; nanoparticle fabrication and functionalization; chemical physics; computational modelling of the nanoworld.
The course will be of interest to physical science graduates looking to work in the field of nanoscience. It’s also suitable for those with an industrial background as a further training opportunity and a way of gaining insights into topics at the forefront of academic research.
You can exit at the end of 9 months with a PgDip.
Minimum second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in physics or a related subject, such as Chemistry, Chemical Engineering, Engineering Physics, Material Science, Nanoscience, Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Biology.
Applicants from an engineering or life science discipline need to have had sufficient exposure to quantum mechanics and solid state physics, such as semiconductor technology courses, or need to demonstrate that they can acquire the necessary background.
