About this course
Apply your engineering at the nanoscale, as you learn to design and test microscopic electronic devices. Discover the innovations in nanotech that will power the next generation of computers and electronics. Our 4-year, integrated Masters will teach you electronic engineering, then specialise in nanotechnology topics. You'll graduate with the skills to work in any area of the electronics industry.
Nanotechnology has made electronic devices smaller and more powerful. It has applications in everything from healthcare to sustainable energy.
Our leading nanofabrication facilities attract the most talented researchers, so you’ll learn from experts at the forefront of the field. You'll also have access to our high-voltage laboratory and high-spec computing labs.
For your individual project, you'll explore an area of nanotechnology that interests you. Then in year 4, you'll take part in a group design project, set by a real industry or academic customer.
As part of your course you can:
learn about the latest advances in fields such as quantum technology and photonics
develop your enterprise skills with help from our startup supporter, Future Worlds
build your own unique electronic systems
