Areas of research include: Nanotechnology and Nanoelectronics, Nanophotonics (photonic crystals and integrated photonics), Quantum Technology and electronic devices, Micro and Nanoelectromechanical Systems (MEMS, microsensors and actuators), Bioelectronics and Lab on a Chip (Microfluidics and Nanofluidics), RF system design (ARTIC).
Electronic Engineering with Nanotechnology offers engineers a firm grounding in conventional electronics, plus the specialist skills at the electronics/physics interface required to work at the forefront of modern nanoscale device fabrication. These programmes enable you to build on a common foundation in electronics by introducing specialist modules from the second year. These modules cover nanoscale electronic devices, optoelectronics, nanofabrication and advanced experimental methods.
The MSc programme is designed to provide a fundamental understanding and practical experience of developing nanotechnology, nanomaterials and nanoelectronic devices. If you are looking to develop specialised practical experimental skills using state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, a research career, or the ability to evaluate the impact of nanotechnology on your technology, then this programme is for you. Participants with good industrial experience are also welcome on the course depending on their background.
