Master of Nanotechnology


Course Description

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.

Professional recognition

Depending on the subjects you select, satisfactory completion of this course may meet the professional level requirements for membership with the Australian Institute of Physics.

Entry Requirements
