Nanotechnology is rapidly establishing itself as a key technology discipline across an assortment of industries, ranging from microelectronics to healthcare. UCL’s MSc in Nanotechnology is designed for graduates who wish to enter this new and dynamic area of technology, either as industrial researchers, technical managers or academic researchers.

The course is taught by expert researchers from UCL’s highly respected Department of Electrical Engineering. The department has a proven track record of achievement across its courses. Its undergraduate courses (including a new programme in Nanotechnology launching in 2007) rank highly in the UK by the Times Higher Education Supplement 2006 and it also the top research-based Electronics Engineering department in London as rated by the Research Assessment Exercise (2001).

Students will also benefit from the state-of-the-art research facilities belonging to the London Centre for Nanotechnology, which offers eight levels of laboratory space and a complete range of nanocharacterisation facilities. The Centre has been designed to act as a focus for current interdisciplinary nanoscale materials, and is essential in ensuring that the UK remains internationally competitive in biotechnology.

“Nanotechnology has huge potential in areas as diverse as healthcare, IT and energy storage,” says Professor Ian Boyd, first Chair of Electronic Materials in UCL’s Department Electronic Engineering. “Governments and businesses across the world have started to invest substantially in the development of nanotechnology and the demand for accomplished, capable workers in this space is rapidly escalating.

“The training and experiences shared on this course will lay the foundation for a new generation of nanotechnology experts to advance this field and uncover new potential uses for a discipline we have only just begun to explore. We are giving the UK the opportunity to lead the way in what is emerging to be a critical cornerstone of modern science and industry.”
