Information valid for students commencing 2013. Students who commenced prior to 2013 should go to the Handbook’s Previous Editions

The Bachelor of Science (Nanotechnology) at UNSW is a multidisciplinary degree taught by the three Schools of Chemistry, Physics and Materials Science and Engineering. The degree is administered by the School of Chemistry, but all schools have a strong input and courses are also hosted by the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences.

No other degree program at UNSW provides the breadth of study in science disciplines that students studying B. Sc. (Nanotechnology) receive. The award of B. Sc. (Nanotechnology) with Honours is made on successful completion of a specialist Nanotechnology research project in the final year of the program. Class sizes are typically 10-35, permitting considerable interaction between academics, researchers and students. This fosters close links between nanotechnology students and research schools. As of 2011, UNSW had graduated over 100 nanotechnologists, of whom four had received University medals.

Students entering B. Sc. (Nanotechnology) at UNSW should have a good high school education in physics, chemistry and mathematics. Organisations employ nanotechnology graduates because of their broad training, capacity to think critically and laterally, and their problem solving abilities. The National Nanotechnology Initiative (nano.gov) predicts that 2 million nanotechnology workers will be needed by 2015, across a broad spectrum of industries.

Close links have been developed between the degree course and the following research centres:

– Australian Centre for Nanomedicine – Centre of Excellence for Quantum Computation and Communication Technology – Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF) – ARC Photovoltaics Centre of Excellence – Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre

On completion of this program, students will have attained a comprehensive knowledge base in the field of nanotechnology.
