Combining interdisciplinary teaching with cutting edge research, this flagship course will train the next generation of nanotechnologists. The course is associated with the London Centre for Nanotechnology, a joint venture between Imperial College London and UCL, allowing a wider choice of collaborative opportunities.
Nanophotonics is a stream within the university's MSc in Physics which is where the science and technology of nanotechnology and photonics meet, delivering the manipulation and control of light on the nanoscale.
The main research topics are: Nanomagnetic Logic Devices; Nanoscale Hall-probe Devices; Technology for Preventing Forgery; Smart Nanoparticles for Targeted Cancer Treatment; Fundamental Properties of Nanoscale Magnetism.
The Department, the first of its kind in Iran, was set up in March 2003 in a brand new building to concentrate the research on all aspects of computational nano-science, and to help promote the fields of nano-science and nano-technology across the country.
The Master of Science in Nanoscience & Nanoengineering provides students with scientific knowledge and research training in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The program incorporates courses in engineering physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering, electronics engineering and molecular biology & genetics.
The main aim of ITUnano is to become a regional nanotechnology research center to strengthen the nanotecnology infrastructure and research activities at ITU and to identify potential industry partners for commercialization of nanotechnology research done at the center.
