Masters Opportunities

The LCN currently supports a few degrees at Masters level. These aim to train students with an interdisciplinary approach, equipping them to begin a PhD/EngD or an industrial career in nanotechnology-related research.

These one- or two-year masters courses are offered by UCL and Imperial College London and are suitable for graduates with physics, chemistry, electrical engineering and other science backgrounds. They are run through teaching departments of the two colleges, but are taught with participation from LCN staff and use LCN facilites for cleanroom training and project work.

MSc in Nanotechnology and Diploma in Nanotechnology - UCL

The MSc in Nanotechnology and the Postgraduate Diploma in Nanotechnology are designed for graduates from the physical sciences and from relevant engineering disciplines who wish to enter this new and exciting arena, either as industrial researchers, technical managers or academic researcher

The course can also be taken as a part time course (over 2 years). 

MRes in Nanomaterials - Imperial College London

Combining interdisciplinary teaching with cutting edge research, Imperial College's flagship Masters Degree in Nanomaterials, run through the Department of Chemistry, is designed to train the next generation of nanotechnologists.

MRes in Bioimaging Science  - Imperial College London

This one-year MRes course covers the fundamentals of modern imaging methodologies, including their techniques and application within medicine and the pharmaceutical industry, along with the chemistry behind imaging agents and biomarkers.

MRes in Plastic Electronic Materials  - Imperial College London

This MRes programme provides a thorough foundation in the science and application of plastic electronic materials, and offers practical training in diverse areas including microscopy, device fabrication and molecular modelling.
