In addition to our dedicated Nanoscience and Nanotechnology MSc, a number of MSc courses include lectures on "Nanofabrication", "Micro- and Nanotechnology", "Optical Communications" and "Microwave and Millimetre Wave Circuit Design", "Analogue CMOS circuit design", VLSI Design and CAD", all research areas undertaken in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.
The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre is predominantly used by postgraduate students. A number of undergraduate projects are undertaken in the Centre by final year BEng and MEng undergraduates taking Electronics and Electrical Engineering degrees each year. The Biomedical Engineering degrees also undertake final year projects in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.
Please note that the JWNC does not accept intern students from other Universities who want to use the centre for only a few months of study.
