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.
The Monash Centre for Atomically Thin Materials (MCATM) fosters collaboration among existing researchers at the university, bringing them together with those with expertise in atomically thin materials, as well as encouraging partnerships with international partners and industry. It also provides a highly multidisciplinary environment to train early career researchers and students.
The ARC Centre of Excellence in Convergent Bio-Nano Science and Technology is a national innovator in bio-nano sciences and an incubator of the expertise and technological excellence required to develop next generation bio-responsive nanomaterials.
Murdoch University offers the undergraduate degree Bachelor of Science in Nanoscience which may be completed in three years of full-time study or over a longer period on a part-time basis. A fourth year of study and research is available if you are selected for an Honours degree.
With this course you will explore classical and modern physics, investigating the physical world around us and beyond. You'll also learn about Nanoscience, the science of the really small, and gain an understanding of the rules and complexities of physics at finer and finer levels.
The Graduate Diploma in Nanoscience program is available to graduate students who wish to upgrade their degree to include a specialisation in the newly developing field of Nanoscience. It provides both a theoretical background as well as practical experience which is gained from completing a major project.
The NanoSafe Australia network is a group of Australian toxicologists and risk assessors, who have formed a research network to address the issues concerning the occupational and environmental health and safety of nanomaterials.
This four year program combines majors in nanotechnology and either physics or chemistry and encompasses physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience and nanotechnology. This double degree provides a strong grounding in nanotechnology, the science and engineering of materials less than a micrometer in size across the disciplines of physics and chemistry with substantial biology and engineering components.
