Location: Dublin , Ireland Duration: see details Fees/total cost: EUR 6,490.00 - EUR 20,400.00

Description

Who is the MSc NanoBio Science for?

The recruits to the course will come from a range of disciplines, including Physics, Theoretical Physics, Chemical Engineering, Mathematics, Biological Sciences and Medicine. The course links closely with universities and leading PhD schools abroad.
The part time programme is aimed primarily at recent graduates from BSc programmes currently working or seeking employment in the area of NanoBio Science.

What will I learn?

You will gain interdisciplinary skills in NanoBio Science. You will learn experimental, computational, and theoretical techniques to produce, control, analyze and image biostructures at the nanoscale.

How will I benefit?

You will work in a research-intensive environment with strong academic and industry links in Ireland and abroad. You will learn commercialisation and innovation skills in collaboration with NovaUCD that will position you strongly for a career in biomedical technologies, pharmaceutical industry and drug development, sustainable energy, academic and/or industrial research.

If already working in the area of NanoBio Science, your skills will be updated with the latest technologies and insight for improved career options.

What is the programme about?

You will learn about nanomaterials, statistical mechanics, computational methods, nanofluidics, nanooptics and biophotonics, scanning probe microscopy, and nanoelectronics to solve problems and create technologies for the NanoBio Sciences.

Programme Highlights

You will learn knowledge at the forefront of NanoBio Science with modules that contain elements of the latest research and newest technologies. You will learn how to innovate, commercialize and protect intellectual property.

You will be offered the chance to go to a major international conference to present a poster on your research work, and you will do your freely chosen research project in collaboration with researchers in the area of nanobio science (www.ucd.ie/nanobio) with excellent infrastructure and access to advanced nanobio technologies and computational resources.

Curriculum

For full-time students the programme is divided into 3 semesters. The focus of the first Semester on NanoBio and NanoOptics, the second Semester focuses on NanoBio Science and Innovation and Presentation Skills, finally the third Semester focuses on your research project work initialized in the second Semester.

For part-time students the programme is divided into 6 semesters. The focus of the first two Semesters is on NanoBio and NanoOptics. In the third Semester you will initiate your work on a research project supervised by an academic in the area of NanoBio Science. In the fourth and fifth Semester you will compliment the modules already studied and also learn Innovation and Presentation Skills.
