This MSc in Nanomaterials Chemistry is designed for Science and Engineering graduates interested to learn about the emerging area of nanomaterials, with a key focus on the chemistry of the nanoscale. The course has a strong emphasis on both the development of technical skills in the areas of nanofabrication/materials chemistry, and the development of professional skills.
Please note, the structure of this MSc has changed from that highlighted in the brochure and from the 2017/2018 offering. The updated programme structure and list of modules being offered for 2018/2019 can be found below.
One significant feature of this programme is that it is delivered in association with Intel Ireland, who are funding four scholarships of €3,000 each.
