Our Nanoscience & Nanotechnology course will take you to the new frontiers of scientific discovery. You’ll explore how scientists operating at the nanoscale are able to manipulate individual atoms and molecules to develop innovative new technologies which are set to transform our world.
This course will give you a solid foundation in nanoscience. The nanoscale is where the various branches of science intersect: physics teaches us how electrons behave, chemistry teaches us how they are exchanged between atoms to form molecules, and molecular biology teaches us how nanomachines are ultimately the building blocks of life.
At the nanoscale, scientists are dealing directly with the fundamental granularity of matter, so technologies on this scale require different tools for assembly and give access to different properties. Most of the benefits currently derived from nanotechnologies are the direct result of miniaturisation (for instance, squeezing more transistors onto a computer chip for increased performance), and these innovations are already some of the biggest drivers of the global economy.
If you’re looking for a course which will prepare you for a successful career at the forefront of the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution’ then this could be exactly what you’re looking for. You’ll explore the incredible potential of ‘wonder materials’ like graphene (200 times stronger than steel, yet just one atom thick) and how these nanomaterials are set to revolutionise everything from computing to aerospace.
Why study with us
You’ll work alongside a multidisciplinary team of researchers and educators with excellent academic profiles who are world leaders in their respective areas.
Outstanding facilities, including our new J.B. Firth Analytical Suite, which gives you access to the very latest specialised equipment and techniques.
To enhance your work experience you’ll have the opportunity to undertake a professional industry placement. This will extend your study time by six to twelve months depending on the length of the placement.
Nanotechnology is an exciting and rapidly advancing area which is set to impact almost every industry, company and individual. This course will prepare you for a successful career in this field, whether you’re looking to work in industry, education or research.

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) is an international, multi-campus university leading the way in contemporary postgraduate learning.
A modern institution with nearly two centuries of educational heritage, UCLan was established in 1992 but can trace its roots all the way back to 1828. There are currently around 200 postgraduate courses on offer, designed to equip students with industry-ready skills and prepare them to excel in the next stage of their career.
The university’s main campus is located in Preston, Lancashire – a small, thriving city which was recently named the best city in North West England to live and work (Demos/PwC, 2021). It also has other campuses based in Burnley, Westlakes and Cyprus.
New students join a truly global institution.
