Nanotechnology Degree Programs at Swansea University
B.Sc. Physics with Nanotechnology Degree Scheme.
This is a one-year course, normally a first- or second-class honours degree, dependent on the area of research, offered at the univrsity's The Multidisciplinary Nanotechnology Centre.
The MRes course consists of a 4-month period of intensively taught modules from October to the end of January, followed by an 8-month period of individual research. There are two streams to the MRes course and students may choose to specialise in either structures or fluids. The MSc course consists of an initial 6- month period of taught modules. This provides a good grounding in computer modelling and in the finite element method, in particular. Following the taught component, students undertake a 6-month period of project work.
The university's Systems and Process Engineering Centre brings together academic expertise from across the University, incorporating state-of-the-art facilities. With their reputation for research in Nanotechnology, Swansea University provides an excellent base for your research as a MSc by Research student in Nanotechnology.
This course provides students with the knowledge, motivation, and self-learning skills required for continuous professional development during their future careers and provides valuable experience of working on complex projects both as individuals and as team members. The full-time scheme lasts for 12 months and consists of two taught semesters (Part I), followed by a three-month period of individual research (Part II) during the summer.
