This program gives you the skills and knowledge to work in the rapidly growing area of nanotechnology.
Nanotechnology is the science and engineering of material less than a micrometre. Nanotechnology requires a broad knowledge of science as well as the ability to apply this knowledge to produce innovative processes or devices.
This double degree program is multidisciplinary, combining nanotechnology with physics or chemistry. It covers physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience/nanotechnology. There is a strong emphasis on using instruments and communication.
You will receive a strong grounding in nanotechnology, with the opportunity to major in either chemistry or physics.
Nanotechnologists design and engineer materials, machines and systems capable of imaging and manipulating single molecules or atoms.
Why study nanotechnology at RMIT?
- RMIT is at the forefront of education and research in the rapidly evolving field of nanotechnology - the science and engineering of materials less than a micrometre in size.
- Reflecting nanotechnology’s multidisciplinary nature, RMIT’s double degree encompasses physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience and nanotechnology.
- RMIT’s equipment and facilities are purpose-built and readily accessible, including the $30 million MicroNano Research Facility which is driving leading advances in micro- and nanotechnologies.
International student visa holders can only study full-time.
You will have the opportunity to work on research projects and practical activities, often undertaken in collaboration with industry.
The final-year Science Project will also provide you with the opportunity to develop an independent research project which can involve an industry partner.
Nanotechnology graduates are in demand for research or industry-based careers in Australia and overseas.
There are graduate shortages in the nano-enabling specialisations of chemistry, particularly polymer, colloidal, organic and bio-inorganic chemistry; materials science and engineering; microelectronics fabrication and meteorology.
Graduates can work in areas such as:
- solar energy
- paints and coatings
- environmental remediation
Graduates may also complete a Masters or PhD and become researchers.
