Massey University - Bachelor of Engineering with Honours (Chemical and Nanotechnology) (New Zealand)
The degree starts with a foundation in mathematics and science and an introduction to technology and engineering. It then builds on these fundamentals to develop the basic skills of a chemical or process engineer and opens up to the ways of thinking of the nano-revolution. We keep the degree broad enough to equip graduates for a range of careers in New Zealand or overseas covering both biological and non-biological processes. There is an opportunity for individual specialisation and participation on the frontier of knowledge with the research project component.
As well as dealing with the novel properties of materials on the nanoscale, a key facet of the Nanoscience major is its interdisciplinary character including all of the fundamental sciences. Students will build on a foundation of maths, physics and chemistry before going on to study aspects of nanoscience itself, focussing on a choice from two options - either quantum nanoscience (with an emphasis on further physics and chemistry of modern nanomaterials) or bionanoscience (with an emphasis on biological macromolecules and nanostructures).
A major in Nanoscience as defined for the BSc degree plus a further 15 credits at the 300-level in an approved subject.
Massey University's Postgraduate Diploma in Science (Nanoscience) gives you the opportunity to join the pathway to in-depth research at a masters level. The programme consists of 90 credits of taught programmes and 30 credits of research.
Three European universities - Grenoble INP, Politecnico di Torino and Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale Lausanne - have set up a joint 'Master's Degree in Micro and Nanotechnology for Integrated Systems'. This is a versatile degree course, given primarily in English and dedicated to micro and nanotechnology. It relies on the complementary skills of these three leading European universities, in training and research in the sphere of micro and nanotechnology.
The Materials Research Society is a not-for-profit organization which brings together scientists, engineers and research managers from industry, government, academia and research laboratories to share findings in the research and development of new materials of technological importance
Research on dynamics and self organization covers nanobio complexity.
The mission of the Department Structure and Nano-/Micromechanics is: to develop experimental methods to perform quantitative nano-/micromechanical and tribological tests for complex and miniaturized materials;to unravel the underlying deformation mechanisms by advanced microstructure characterization techniques from the micrometer level down to atomic dimensions; to establish material laws for local and global mechanical behavior; and to generate nanostructured materials and high temperature intermetallic materials with superior mechanical properties.
A group of physicists, biologists, chemists and engineers conceiving inventing and utilizing optical microscopes with resolution at the nanometer scale to advance life sciences.
Dealing with chemical and physical aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Research efforts in the Department are centered on nanometer-scale science and technology, primarily focussing on solid state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions and interfaces.
The creation of novel materials with targeted functionalities is the ultimate goal in several scientific and technological fields, ranging from chemistry and pharmaco-chemistry to molecular electronics and renewable energies. Molecular modelling and simulation are vital components of the scientific investigation of materials, as well as essential tools to engineer novel materials with improved performances. Future advances in this field should systematically address the challenge of bridging the gap between simulations and experiments. To this end, a unifying theme of this research is the development of a modelling framework for the investigation of materials. Through the creative synthesis of traditional all-atom simulations, electronic structure methods, and rare events techniques, we apply a multiscale approach to the study of materials and nanostructures.
Four departments: Biomaterials, Colloid Chemistry, Interfaces as well as Theory and Bio-Systems. Current research topics are polymeric films, membranes, micro- capsules, organic and inorganic nano- structures, biomineralization, nanoreactors or molecular motors.
Experimental and theoretical research carried out at the Max Planck Institute of Microstructure Physics is primarily focussed on solid state phenomena that are determined by small dimensions and surfaces and interfaces. The investigations concentrate on establishing relations between the magnetic, electronic, optical, and mechanical properties of solids and their microstructure. Thin films and surfaces are investigated as well as nanocrystalline materials, phase boundaries and defects in bulk crystals.
Through courses already offered in the Faculties of Science, Engineering, and Medicine, depending on the courses completed, undergraduate students will acquire knowledge in areas related to nanotechnology.
Investigation of semiconductors and devices for optoelectronic applications including photovoltaic energy conversion and optical communications. Development of thin film transistors for electronic displays and imaging systems.
The group's research in micro- and nanobioengineering is focused on miniaturizing biological experimentation to microscopic scales and progresses along two axes: Firstly, create tools and use them for precisely controlling and varying the cellular microenvironment, which will allow studying the response of cells and groups of cells to external cues and stimuli applied to single cells. Secondly, the large scale parallelization of the biological experiments for both protein analysis and cell biological experiments.
The experimental research projects in the group address the mechanical behavior of very small systems.
The focus of the research program is to apply the recently developed tools, techniques and materials to the emerging field of Nanoelectronics.
The group's research focuses on the application and development of advanced microscopy techniques to study the structure of materials at very high spatial resolution. The core area of research is based on transmission electron microscopy methods but they also use scanning probe techniques and other characterization techniques to provide information on how the structure of materials affects the properties these materials exhibit.
MBI?s primary focus is to identify, measure and describe how the forces for motility and morphogenesis are expressed at the molecular, cellular and tissue level. Toward that goal, we are working to create a common international standard for defining these steps by developing powerful new computational models, experimental reagents, and tools for studying diseases of cells and tissues. Our goal is then to transfer these basic discoveries to both the clinic and the classroom.
(Site in German) The BMBF supported research project on metal gate electrodes and epitaxial oxides as gate stacks for future CMOS logic and memory generations (MEGA EPOS) refers to the BMBF research program IKT2020 - Elektronik und Mikrosysteme. The consortium is coordinated by Gesellschaft für Angewandte Mikro- und Optoelektronik (AMO) and consists of seven partners acting from basic research to application.
The Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication is the Victorian Node and headquarters of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF). Opened in July 2010, this multi-user research facility is operating the largest purpose-built cleanroom complex in the Southern Hemisphere. Drawing upon the wealth of knowledge within six Universities and CSIRO, they are uniquely placed in a thriving cosmopolitan world-centre enabling us to bridge the gaps between scientific disciplines and commercial needs.
