MPhil Programme in Micro- & Nanotechnology Enterprise

The MPhil programme in Micro- & Nanotechnology Enterprise is an exciting opportunity in which world-leading scientists and successful entrepreneurs are brought together to deliver a one-year Master’s degree, which combines an in-depth multidisciplinary scientific programme with a global perspective on the commercial opportunities and business practice necessary for the successful exploitation.

Students are based in the Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy, but attend some programmes in other parts of the University. The programme is modular in structure, with each module consisting of a set number of lectures with additional discussion groups and personal study time. The modules are taught in the first two terms and are followed by formal examinations. Students then go on to complete either a business or scientific research project. The programme lasts 10 months.

There is an annual intake of around 10 students selected through a highly competetive application process.

Further details on the current course and the application procedure for future years are found on the dedicated course website and informal enquiries may be made to the course administrator.
