About

The Micro and Nanotechnology MSc course offered by the University of Southampton is a one year masters degree with a focus on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and nanoelectronics. You will develop knowledge and understanding of the microtechnology and nanotechnology aspects of electronic engineering and their application in micro and nanoscale devices. 

Overview

Course Details

The Micro and Nanotechnology MSc course offered by the University of Southampton outlines the micro and nanotechnology aspects of electronic engineering, with a focus on microelectromechanical systems and nanoelectronics. These technologies, for example, underpin research and development of miniaturised sensors, including the motion and position sensors in mobile phones, and of nanoscale logic and memory devices for next-generation consumer electronics and future quantum devices. The programme also addresses microfluidic technology, enabling miniaturised biodevices for point-of-care diagnostic applications, and covers the fundamentals of photonic circuits and devices.

The modules which comprise this masters degree involve state-of-the-art design, fabrication and characterisation methodologies, using industry-standard tools and our state-of-the-art cleanroom complex.
