Microsystem and Nanotechnology Centre
Innovative postgraduate programmes in Microsystems & Nanotechnology, aiming to provide a thorough grounding in the skills necessary for a technically-based career in the new high-tech industries.
Providing students with a thorough grounding with general and technology management skills. This MSc covers technologies used to design, realise and analyse micro and nano-scale devices, materials and systems. Examples include 3D micromanufacture, sensors and actuators and microelectronic mechanical systems (MEMS). This, supported by project work, results in highly skills graduates with an appreciation of the relevance of the subject to industrial needs.
Students benefit from extensive state-of-the-art analytical facilities, and 100 m2 of clean-room space dedicated to the fabrication of microsystems devices which are equipped with a wide range of thin film deposition, photolithographic and test facilities.
Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3).
