This degree prepares students for professional careers in the multidisciplinary field of nanotechnology, covering biological, chemical and physical processes at the nanoscale. Students will develop fundamental skills in the technology of advanced imaging and characterisation techniques for seeing and manipulating of atoms/molecules, creating chemical and biological nanomachines, smart materials, biomaterials and biodevices, molecular mimics and fabrication of nanostructured devices through the specialised units in this program. Graduates will be skilled to pursue further postgraduate research and/or many challenging career options, examples include as nanotechnologists, smart and effective product developers, managers and consultants in biotechnology, defence, petroleum and pharmaceutical and health industries, chemical, material and engineering focused industries

Study Mode
Three years full-time.
