Features and Benefits
- Our goal is to equip graduates with the knowledge and skills necessary to understand and harness the potential of nanomaterials in future advanced manufacturing, ICT, chemical, biopharma, medical device (diagnostics, drug delivery, and therapeutics) and other industries with a view to future employment in these sectors.
- The quality and diversity of our research environment will enrich the learning experience of nanomaterial chemistry students and will empower them to develop the competitive skillset necessary to establish successful careers. Opportunities to conduct a research project through internship will be available.
- Key to learning about nanomaterials is the availability of advanced technology platforms that permit the preparation and processing of nanomaterials in synergy with quantitative materials measurement and functional assessment. In this regard, the UCD School of Chemistry is strongly positioned in hosting world-class researchers and teachers that are comprehensively supported by state-of-the-art nano research facilities.
- A key feature of this MSc is a Professional Development Module, which gives students a hand-on learning experience around how to target your CV, how to prepare for an interview, and in gaining an understanding of the job opportunities available in this field. This course is also a route for students into a PhD programme.
