About this course

Combine the study of physics with nanotechnology on this master's degree. Nanotechnology involves the study of matter down to the scale of a single atom. At this scale, materials behave in unusual ways. You’ll study these behaviours and learn how they can be harnessed for new purposes.

On this MPhys degree, you’ll be taught by academics who are making advances in exciting areas. They are working on atom chips for quantum computing, for example, and investigating the properties of carbon nanotubes.

You’ll also benefit from our world-class facilities, which include a cleanroom complex where you can conduct your own research.

Other facilities include a photonics lab, X-ray microscopes and IRIDIS, one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers.

High-performing students are also eligible to apply to one of our flagship programmes.

With this degree you could embark on a career in industry research and development, do further study at PhD level, or choose from a wide range of other professions.

Physics offers an academic scholarship scheme worth up to £20,000, plus an unconditional offer based on a competitive exam taken at applicant visit days.
