The Graduate Diploma in Nanotechnology is a 36-unit program offered by the College of Science and Engineering.
The course articulates with the 72-unit Master of Nanotechnology. Students who have completed the Graduate Diploma are awarded credit for related topics towards the Masters degree.
Applicants must normally hold a degree in any relevant discipline of science or engineering or equivalent qualification from an approved tertiary institution. Examples of relevant disciplines include but are not limited to Chemistry, Physics, Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering or Biotechnology.
The Dean (Education) may, under certain circumstances and subject to specific conditions, admit others who can show evidence of fitness for candidature.
The Graduate Diploma in Nanotechnology is designed to broaden the knowledge and skills of graduates who hold an undergraduate qualification in science, engineering or equivalent, and is not available to graduates who hold an undergraduate qualification in nanotechnology.
The primary aim of this course is to facilitate skills transfer from another relevant area of engineering or science and technology to the study of nanotechnology. Students will develop the capacity to:
Upon successful graduation students will:
