Nanotechnology - understanding, creating and controlling events on the scale of nanometres (millionth of a millimetre) - is an emerging field which aims to understand and exploit the science of the very small. It covers a wide range of areas including semiconductors, where it is hoped that very small components will continue the increase in computational speed predicted by Moore's Law. Chemical systems expect nanotechnology to provide sophisticated sensors for chemicals at low concentrations, with applications to biological systems. Biologists seek means of manipulating and sensing biological processes within cells. This course has a strong research focus. You will work in state-of-the-art research laboratories equipped with world class fabrication and characterisation resources resources. The course requires the completion of 240 credit points over two years of full-time or equivalent part-time study. Please note: Some of these subjects may not be offered in the current year.
