Master of Nanotechnology and Smart Materials




Courses Overview

What will I learn?
Equip yourself with specialist knowledge and advanced skills in the application and research of nanotechnology and new materials.
This Master is program provides a basis for roles in technology development, and interdisciplinary and trans-disciplinary projects.
Using skills in chemistry or physics you will explore the different applications of nanotechnology and materials science such as optics, photonics, communications, medicine, and defence.
This program will provide extensive hands-on lab experiences to both reinforce the coursework material and to introduce students to the breadth of career opportunities in the rapidly expanding world of nanotechnology.
Both the coursework and lab work components of the program are intrinsically multidisciplinary, with chemistry and physics core concepts strongly supplemented by training in relevant biology, engineering and computational science approaches.
Grounding and depth
You will gain a strong grounding in the physics and chemistry of nanotechnology and smart materials and learn about relevant research tools to independently or collaboratively design and make new materials with customised properties.
The program will develop your understanding of structure and property relationships at the nanoscale. It covers important aspects of bio-nano science and quantum physics with various fields of nanotechnology.
The program provides learning experiences that focus on the emerging needs of industry and research.
Research is a key feature of the program and you will undertake a significant research component, specialising in either chemistry or physics related nanotechnology with input and feedback from current researchers and project supervisors.
You will perform a series of intensive, small-group immersion activities in a number of different nanotechnology environments, including research laboratories, modelling experiences and off-site workshops.
These experiences may include quantum imaging and biophotonics, ab initio and molecular modelling, medical imaging and synchrotron science.
Apply the principles of physics, chemistry and biology to design new products on the nano-scale in this new and rapidly expanding area of science.
Nanomaterials are already revolutionising daily life and careers in the 21st century.
They can be found in almost all facets of global industry; making an impact on our medicine, food, industrial and environmental processes.
Nanotechnology experts apply the principles of physics, chemistry and biology to design new products on the nano-scale.
This program is designed to provide students with a wide range of technical and theoretical expertise and exposure to the diversity of uses of nanomaterials in industry and society.
From this foundation, students will be well-prepared to pursue their future careers in industry or academia, both within Australia or internationally.
