About this program
Nanotechnology and Microfabrication
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 MSci project and in the taught part of the course, and have commended that students on this course do significant projects in the clean room.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will earn a MSci.
Some MSc students will continue postgraduate study after graduating, going on to PhD and MPhil programs.
Students completing this course will have a firm grasp of the current practices and directions in this exciting area and will have the knowledge and skills to enable you to design and build microscale devices. In particular you will have strong numerical modelling skills, with expertise in the newly emerging field of multiphysics modelling. These skills are immediately applicable in the growing number of industries which apply nanotechnology to the design of new products and processes.
Graduates of these courses have gone on to work in various branches of the Electronics industry, for example optical communications and telecommunications companies, government research facilities like GCHQ, and various nanotechnology enterprises, from start-ups to multinational companies.
