Nanotechnology Degree Programs at La Trobe University

 
The Nanotechnology / Science double degree program aims to provide students with a broad education in disciplines that will underpin the science and technology, in particular nanotechnology, in the coming years. Our double degree course structure provides full coverage of subject areas, avoiding the compromises of shorter niche degrees where the supporting sciences are reduced to include the nanotechnology units.
This double degree program is offered by the Departments of Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and enables completion of a Masters level nanotechnology degree in combination with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree focused on the disciplines that underpin nanotechnology. It provides nanotechnology students with a direct path from first year through to a Masters qualification. Graduates with qualifying grades will be eligible for entry into a Ph.D. in a relevant discipline area at La Trobe University. The double degree structure is chosen for the teaching of nanotechnology, as it requires knowledge of a broad range of supporting sciences and time to develop the required specialisation.

The Master of Nanotechnology is a comprehensive two year course featuring both in-depth lecture units, seminars by leading speakers and a wide range of practical learning opportunities. Graduates are equipped with the broad range of the skills required to flourish in the rapidly developing field of nanotechnology. The course has a strong research focus, with high achieving students, those in the Honours stream, working in state-of-the-art research laboratories equipped with world class fabrication and characterization resources.
