Master of Nanotechnology and Smart MaterialsCareer
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.
Work-integrated learning is embedded in the program through research projects where there may be external industry assessors or industry based supervisors.
Industrial and applied researchers working in the NanoSmart field will lead seminars throughout the program.
Professional recognition and accreditation
There is no formal professional accreditation for this program.
Graduates may be eligible for membership of professional bodies such as the Royal Australian Chemical Institute or the Australian Institute of Physics depending on their specialisation.
Graduates of the Master of Nanotechnology and Smart Materials will be equipped to undertake a research PhD in their specialised discipline (for example Applied Biology and Biotechnology, Applied Chemistry or Applied Physics).
