Undergraduate diploma (or higher)
A good honours degree in materials, metallurgy, chemistry, physics or a related engineering subject from an approved institution
The entry qualification documents are accepted in the following languages: English.
Often you can get a suitable transcript from your school. If this is not the case, you will need official translations along with verified copies of the original.
IELTS: 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each component
At least 2 reference(s) must be provided.
These should be supplied and signed by academic staff at institutions where you have studied previously. They must be presented on the official letter-headed paper of the relevant institution. If you have been out of education for the last two years, you can send one academic reference plus one from your current employer if you wish.
This course will provide you with the skills to become an expert in materials science with a specialisation in nanotechnology.
A nanomaterial is a material that has particles of nanoscale dimensions, or one that is produced by nanotechnology.
The first semester covers the fundamentals of materials science and engineering. Semester two gives you a comprehensive grounding in nanoscience and nanomaterials.
The course content and teaching methods reflect the interdisciplinary nature of the subject. We keep it flexible so you can specialise in what interests you the most.
That could be inorganic nanomaterials or biomaterials. Or anything from nanocomposite materials to nanomagnetic or nanoelectronic materials.
For the research project, you join a (nanomaterials-related) research group of your choice. The project represents one third of the course.
There may be some changes to these modules before you start your course. For the very latest module information, check with the department.
