MSc Nanotechnology and Microfabrication

About This 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.
