MSc Micro and Nanotechnology

Discover micro and nanotechnology on this master’s degree. You’ll learn how microelectromechanical systems and nanoelectronics inform next-generation consumer electronics. Prepare for a career in industry or academic research.

Microelectromechanical systems and nanotechnologies are vital to the research and development of modern electronics, including miniaturised sensors and nanoscale logic and memory devices.

On this Micro and Nanotechnologies MSc you’ll learn the scientific and engineering principles that support a wide range of micro and nanoscale technologies. You'll also learn about microfluidic technology, enabling miniaturised biodevices for point-of-care diagnostic applications, and the fundamentals of photonic circuits and devices.

You’ll be able to fit the master’s in nanotechnology into your interests or career plans by specialising in areas such as:

You'll get training in the latest design, fabrication and characterisation methodologies, and benefit from using industry-standard tools and facilities such as our cleanroom complex.

Specialist modules are taught by staff involved in leading edge research, so your learning will be informed by the latest developments in these areas.

Your course leader is Dr Ruomeng Huang. Ruomeng has published over 50 journal papers and delivered over 40 oral/poster presentations at national and international conferences. He is a regular reviewer of several journals from the American Chemical Society (ACS), the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
