'Nanotechnology' is moving from the rhetoric of hype into a manufacturing reality. The popularised myths described in popular fiction like Michael Crichton's novel 'Prey', and serialised in TV dramas, are rapidly being pushed aside as large organisations such as Unilever and QinetiQ see the value of integrating miniature and nanosystems. In such a rapidly changing and vibrant atmosphere it is vital that the Microsystems and Nanotechnology programmes are agile and satisfy industry's requirements.
This course is suitable for graduates with science, engineering or related degrees keen to develop careers at the cutting edge of micro-engineering; or graduates currently working in industry keen to extend their qualifications; or individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience.
