About the Course

The new frontier Nanotechnology is the science and engineering of material that is less than a micrometre, enabling manipulation of matter at the atomic scale. This branch of science is radically changing industry and society, and is creating exciting new job opportunities. It's been almost half a century since Richard Feynman first imagined nanotechnology, but it’s only recent developments that have allowed scientists to fully explore this theory – leading to a world of potential benefits and commercial applications. What do nanotechnologists do? Nanotechnologists design and engineer materials, machines and systems that are capable of imaging and manipulating single molecules or atoms, producing novel materials that are ubiquitous in modern life: from mobile phones to solar panels; from cosmetics to breakthrough medicine. This degree will help you build the knowledge you need to participate in this rapidly advancing and evolving area of science. Why study nanotechnology at RMIT? We are at the forefront of education and research in this field. Our degree encompasses physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience and nanotechnology. Our equipment and facilities are purpose-built and accessible. This includes our $30 million dollar MicroNano Research Facility, which drives advances in this field.
