FST Postgraduate


Nanotechnology research course is typically designed for graduate students who want to gain hands-on experience in the field of nanotechnology research that covers the science and engineering of materials and systems at the nanoscale, and their applications in a wide range of fields. In a nanotechnology research course, students typically work individually on a research project under the supervision of a supervisor. The project could include designing and carrying out experiments, analysing data, and presenting findings at scientific meetings or in publications. Students may also have the opportunity to visit and interact with researchers at other institutions or research facilities, as well as attend seminars and workshops to learn about the most recent advances in nanotechnology research. The course can provide students with valuable career skills and experience in research and development in fields such as materials science, engineering, health science, and environmental science.
