Nanotechnology Degree Programs at University College London
The CDT provides a 4-year programme. The students will take a broadly based training year before undertaking a PhD research project in one of the centre's research groups.
The programme provides a solid grounding in Electronic Engineering along with specialisation in Nanotechnology. It makes use of UCL's pivotal position as hosts of the London Centre for Nanotechnology, to provide access to state-of-the art laboratory facilities and teaching from experts in the field.
The programme introduces students to and provides training in the skills essential for almost all fields of nanotechnology research, including key laboratory skills and techniques in planning, building devices, analysis, and results comparison. The core lecture programme covers essential topics in physics, electrical and electronic engineering, and biology.
Delivered by a group of world-leading research scientists, lecturers and experts in technology transfer, the MSc in Nanotechnology & Regenerative Medicine has a clinical focus, ensuring it addresses real medical needs. Students have the opportunity to learn about new technologies that are transforming modern medicine: nanomedicine; tissue engineering; stem cell technologies. They will also develop research skills by joining interdisciplinary world leading teams. An in-depth laboratory-based research project is an integral component of the programme (50%). Project topics include: nanoparticle targeted drug delivery, imaging and therapy; trachea, nose, ear, cardiovascular, skin and bone tissue engineering; functionalised scaffolds for directing stem cell differentiation.
