Gain advanced training in the specialised field of micro-nano engineering with a choice of focusing on micro-nano electronics or micro-nano systems.
The program will equip you with knowledge of micro-nano engineering, from fundamentals all the way to applications by providing design, simulation and hands-on micro-nano fabrication experiences.
You can specialise in one of two areas:
- micro-nano electronics (design and basic fabrication)
- micro-nano systems (fundamentals and specialised fabrication)
As part of the program you’ll have access to the state-of-the-art MicroNano Research Facility (MNRF). The MNRF has comprehensive facilities for the design, fabrication, packaging, and characterisation of micro- and nano-scale devices.
There is also a strong focus on research through a major project. The University has demonstrated strengths in research in the micro-nano engineering fields, having achieved a rating of well above world standard (Excellence in Research for Australia 2015).
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
Class contact is generally in the afternoon and evening to fit in with work commitments of part-time students.
Classes are taught by experts in their fields. There is a strong emphasis on laboratory work and professional engineering projects to put theory into practice and to enhance research, teamwork, leadership, communication and project management skills.
Graduates are prepared for careers in the design of devices or systems employing micro-nano engineering fabrication techniques and in the development or management of fabrication facilities in either a research or manufacturing context.
Potential areas of employment include the semiconductor industry or the rapidly emerging area of biomedical device engineering.
