Master of Nanotechnology and Smart MaterialsProgram details
Equip yourself with specialist knowledge and advanced skills in the application and research of nanotechnology and new materials.
This Masters 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.
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.
Facilities and research
We have leading nanotechnology and nanoscience facilities, enabling high-precision research in areas including nanofabrication, testing and analysis, nanoscale biophotonics and disease detection, among other areas.
Nanotechnology research at RMIT has vast applications ranging from medicines fighting disease at the molecular level to the next generation of optics-based IT technologies that will transform communication systems and information security.
