Professor Andrew Greentree introduces a new RMIT degree designed to make graduates “research-ready” in the field of nanotechnology.
This video features the presenter talking to camera interspersed with scenes of laboratory facilities and students working on scientific equipment. Upbeat music plays throughout.
Master of nanotechnology and Smart Materials
Professor Andrew Greentree from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale Biophotonics explains how RMIT’s Master of Nanotechnology and Smart Materials will foster discovery and develop leaders in the field.
When we look at the world around us we see it at the macro-scale and develop an intuition about how materials behave.
But at the micro-level the rules of the game are different.
At small scales the rates of chemical reactions change and quantum mechanical effects that we ignore at large scales become important.
When we understand the nano-scale we can create new technologies.
Here at RMIT we've invested over fifty million dollars in state of the art facilities to drive research and innovation in nanotechnology.
We've introduced a postgraduate degree that will foster discovery and develop leaders in the field.
The Master of Nanotechnology and Smart Materials is for passionate scientists and engineers who want to make their mark.
You’ll specialise in either chemistry or physics related nanotechnology and learn the latest experimental and computational modelling techniques.
You'll study bio-inspired technologies and be trained to use the high-tech fabrication facilities at RMIT and around the world.
Most of all the program is designed to make graduates research ready and the second year of the program is devoted to a major research project.
With shortages in the nano-enabling specialisations of chemistry, engineering and microelectronics graduates are in high demand in industry and research.
From quantum mechanics to bioscience, nanotechnology is positively contributing to the world economy and will benefit future generations.
At RMIT we want students to find their passion and pursue it with all their ability.
