The Masters in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology teaches you the skills desired by modern industry for scientists and engineers doing research, development and production in nanoscience and nanofabrication. This multidisciplinary programme will complement your background in electronics, materials science, or physics. Prestigious Scottish Funding Council Awards are available to high calibre applicants for this programme.
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.
The programme starts in late September each year and is divided into three approximately equal periods. The first and second periods consist of lectures, laboratory classes, seminars and similar material. In the third period, students undertake an individually supervised project on a topic relevant to their special interests.
This course is run jointly with the University of Leeds. This course package attempts to deliver the new kind of graduates required to sustain the many multi-million-dollar research and development programmes issued internationally by most industrial countries, such as the UK DTI Nanotechnology initiative.
