Nanotechnology aims to understand and exploit the science of the very small. It covers a wide range of areas including semiconductors, biotechnology, medicine, and energy policy. Nanotechnology provides sophisticated sensors for the sensitive detection of chemicals at low concentrations with applications to biological, environmental and medical systems. At second year students select one of the following specialised streams of study:This combined degree program is offered by the School of Molecular Sciences, and enables completion of a Masters-level nanotechnology degree in combination with a Bachelor of Science (Honours) degree focused on the disciplines that underpin nanotechnology. It provides nanotechnology students with a direct path from first year through to a Masters-level qualification. Graduates with qualifying grades will be eligible for entry into a PhD in a relevant discipline area at La Trobe University. Student exchange and overseas short programs offer a unique opportunity for a meaningful learning and educational experience abroad. La Trobe University encourages all students to make the world their campus by participating in an exchange or overseas short program that fits within your degree structure. Student exchange and overseas short programs may also be eligible for a mobility grant.
