Nanotechnology and Microfabrication - MSc


Bangor University    College of Environmental Sciences and Engineering

Full time September MSc 1 year full time

About the course

We are one of the very few universities in the UK to offer hands-on time fabricating devices in a clean room environment and operator time on laser micro-machining equipment.

This course teaches numerate graduates knowledge and skills in the field of nanotechnology and microfabrication. The course takes an immersive approach to learning both the principles and practices of nanotechnology and microfabrication with much of the material based around examples and practical exercises. External examiners have noted the strong practical element both in the MSc project and in the taught part of the course, and have commended that students on this course do significant projects in the clean room.

Student Profile(s)

Anoop Menachery

Anoop Menachery studied MSc Nanotechnology and Microfabrication at Bangor University before continuing to undertake a PhD at the School of Electronic Engineering

"I came to Bangor in 2003 to pursue an MSc in Nanotechnology and Microfabrication.

"Bangor University was one of the few universities offering such a course with so much hands-on experience in the clean room. The course gave me an in-depth understanding of the field of microtechnologies. The staff at the School of Electronic Engineering provided fantastic support and mentoring. I thoroughly enjoyed my Masters Course primarily because of the enthusiasm of my teachers.

"I am now studying for a PhD in the area of Nanobiotechnology. This area involves the use of micro-nanobiologies to scale down current medical laboratory practices thereby increasing processing efficiency. My area of research involves both experimental and theoretical studies which makes it all the more interesting. The last few years have been both intellectually stimulating and great fun. Besides studying at a friendly University, Bangor and its surrounding areas has a lot to offer people who, like me love the outdoors."
