Master of Engineering (Micro-Nano Engineering)Program details
The Master of Micro-Nano Engineering gives you the opportunity to work alongside internationally recognised researchers in purpose-built research and teaching facilities.
You'll learn from experts in their fields and gain from a strong emphasis on laboratory work and professional engineering projects to put theory into practice.
The Master of Micro-Nano Engineering consists of 192 credit points. After completing 96 credit points of study approved by the Program Manager, you may exit with a graduate diploma.
This Masters degree offers you two opportunities to specialise, culminating in a major project in your final year.
MicroNano Electronics (design and basic fabrication)
Training in semiconductor, electronic, digital system and circuit design and fabrication is central to this stream.
MicroNano Systems (fundamentals and specialised fabrication)
In this stream, you‘ll be provided with the knowledge and skills to design, model, micro-fabricate and interface microsystem devices such as optics and sensors.
How will you learn
You will undertake three core courses which include laboratory work that places you in an industry design situation.
Your studies will include micro-nano fabrication processes in cleanrooms and involve the use of commercial design tools for design and simulation of micro-nano devices. This emulates industry practices where engineers are required to simulate device designs and use foundries to fabricate their chip designs. The focus of the core courses is to train you on how design and fabrication is undertaken in industry.
In addition you will be able to choose between a specialisation in micro-nano electronics (design and basic fabrication) or micro-nano systems (fundamentals and specialised fabrication).
You will undertake two core courses, including a major project that requires you to produce an individual research project or outcome that may be part of a larger project. You will work under the guidance of a professional engineer who may be from industry or be an academic or research staff member attached to the MicroNano Research Facility (MNRF).
Projects are typically in the areas of silicon photonics, microfluidics, micro/nano-fabrication, nano-electronics, flexible electronics, and electronic circuit design. The work for this project will be carried out in the state-of-the-art MNRF.
In addition, you will continue with your chosen specialisation.
