'Nanotechnology' - science and engineering at the molecular scale - has moved from the rhetoric of hype into a manufacturing reality. In such a rapidly changing and vibrant atmosphere it is vital that organizations are agile. Large organizations such as Unilever and QinetiQ are already integrating micro and nanosystems with the aim of developing products that are lighter, stronger, less expensive and more precise.

The innovative MSc in Microsystems and Nanotechnology aims to provide students with a thorough grounding in the skills necessary for a technically-based career in the new high-tech industries. The course covers technologies used to design, realise and analyse micro and nano-scale devices, materials and systems, coupled with general and technology management.

Suitable for

  • Graduates with science, engineering or related degrees keen to develop career at the cutting edge of micro-engineering
  • Graduates currently working in industry keen to extend their qualifications
  • Individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience

Course Overview
The course comprises eight assessed modules, a group project and an individual project.

The modules

Group project
The group project provides students with the opportunity to address a real life industrial problem while working under academic supervision. Success is dependent on the integration of various activities and working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets. Experience gained is highly valued by both students and prospective employers. For part time students a dissertation replaces the group project

Individual Project
The individual project is either based within a company or a relevant research area within Cranfield University. It provides students with the opportunity to carry out independent research, think and work in an original way, contribute knowledge and overcome real-life problems.
