University of Oxford: Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology

Oxford University’s Department for Continuing Education offers a number of technology and health-related courses and workshops. Please find below information about our Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology.

 

Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology

 

Developed by the University of Oxford's Begbroke Science Park and the Department for Continuing Education, the Postgraduate Certificate in Nanotechnology is a quality online course aimed at professionals from a diverse range of backgrounds who wish to learn more about the foundations of nanotechnology, technological advances and the applications enabled by nanotechnology.

 

This part-time course is designed to be completed over nine months, using a blend of individual study of online learning materials, together with group work during online tutorials, discussions and research. The group sessions with tutors are particularly valuable because they offer highly authentic learning and assessment opportunities.

 

  • The Wider Context of Nanotechnology
  • The Fundamental Science of Nanotechnology
  • Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology (featuring Nano-scale Materials Characterisation Residential Weekend)

 

Each of these modules may also be studied individually as a short course.

 

We are accepting applications for the new academic year. The deadline is 9 March 2012

 

We are also accepting applications for the Fundamental Characterisation for Nanotechnology short course and Residential Weekend.

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
