This 4-year course is based on physics but includes content from chemistry and biology to give an important appreciation of how all the sciences have new effects to be observed and new applications to be discovered.
This unique course is focused directly on this interface between the fields of electronics and nanotechnology. It covers the foundations of electronic engineering, from communications systems through to computer engineering, integrated circuit design and micro/nano fabrication. It enables you to understand the principles of electronics and nanotechnology, in particular the principles of the fabrication and design of modern microelectronic products.
You will study key topics from all the core sciences - chemistry, biology, physics, material science and electronics - alongside specialist modules in nanoscience and nanotechnology. At the same time you will experience the fascination of nanotechnology via hands-on practical work with state-of-the-art nanoscience equipment.
The N&N degree will run as follows. From the start, you will see what effect the 'rules for the small world' have on the shape and reactivity of molecules, large and small, and on the behaviour of electrons.
