This program investigates the basic theory and applications of nanotechnology in the biological and chemical sciences, in physics and in engineering science. One of these four streams is completed at Levels 2 and 3, with a major project unit in nanotechnology at Level 3.
Medical Nanotechnology is the application of the methods and techniques of Nanotechnology to medical and health areas. The student may also choose to specialise in Nanophysics or Nanochemistry opening up alternative career paths in industry (biotechnology, pharmaceutical, health, defence, chemical, petroleum, materials and engineering).
The Bachelor of Nanotechnology is an interdisciplinary degree which is jointly offered by the Faculties of Engineering and Science. The degree targets the emerging field of nano-materials, molecular machines and nano-science. The course draws on major research strengths at UOW including: the Intelligent Polymer Research Institute, the Institute for Superconducting and Electronic Materials, the BlueScope Steel Metallurgy Centre and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science.
