'Nanotechnology has the capacity to be hugely beneficial and to transform society. However, to fully develop its benefits, the technology must be sustainable and environmentally benign. This MRes will help students to understand the benefits and attendant risks, so helping to provide an improved future for the industry and the environment.’ --Professor Jamie Lead, Course Leader
This postgraduate programme is designed to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of nanoscience and its potential environmental and human health related risk. The MRes focuses on the fundamental and underpinning science but also discusses applications, synthesis and policy and regulatory responses. This is a research focused Masters course with a large part of the course devoted to an independent, but supervised, research project which will be performed in state of the art laboratories here at the University of Birmingham.
Coverage of nanoscience and its implications Focused teaching and learning modules Experimental, field based or modelling research project This programme is a collaborative endeavour between the Environmental Health Science group in the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Biosciences.
Taught and research elements are undertaken concurrently.
