There is an ever increasing requirement in modern industrial research, development and production for scientists and engineers with the practical skills necessary to fabricate systems of sensors, actuators, functional materials, and integrating electronics at the micro and nano scale; and with the necessary insights in nanoscience to develop new products using these skills.
Through a combination of lectures, tutorials, seminars and lab work you will
The programme builds toward an extended project: many of these are linked to industry or related research at the University. Our contacts with industry and our research collaborations will make this a meaningful and valuable experience.
Former nanoscience and nanotechnology graduates from Glasgow are now working for a large number of companies including Intel, TSMC, IBM, Global Foundires, ST Microelectronics, Freescale, Oxford Instruments Plama Technology, ASM, Applied Materials and many others.
These companies actively recruit from Glasgow and we have many industrial collaborators and contacts through our present research in nanosciences, nanofabrication, nanoelectronics, optoelectronics and nanotechnology.
Studying at Glasgow gives you access to researchers working at these companies and many of our international collaborators.
