Key qualifications in Nanotechnology - new interdisciplinary course
provides highly demanded specialised knowledge
Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine are some of the most significant key technologies of the 21st century and possess enormous economic, socio-political and financial potential. Three universities are joining their specialised knowledge to offer a unique course named "NanoBiosciences & NanoMedicine (MEng)", which can be attended parallel to employment. The Master's program is focused on interdisciplinary requirements and opportunities in the field of nanotechnology in biotechnology and medicine.
In addition to providing basic knowledge of biophysics, biochemistry, genetics, microbiology and molecular biology, the course will cover innovative approaches in sensors, nano-analysis, nanotoxicology, nanobiotechnology, as well as tissue and organ replacement. The risks of nanotechnology will also be addressed and viewed critically.
NanoBioscience & NanoMedicine is a rapidly growing field offering a variety of exciting career opportunities.
