Nanoscience » Overview

Nanoscience is a growing field. It relates to the science and manipulation of chemical and biological structures of dimensions between the range of 1-100 nanometers.

Nanoscience is the area of science that studies atoms, molecules and other objects that are on the nanometre scale – 1 to 100 billionth of a metre. Essentially, it is the area of science that studies what is too minute for us to see with the naked human eye.

As the potential for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is realised, its knowledge contributes toward the development of other areas of science such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Materials Science and Engineering. Nanoscientists use their knowledge to tackle the wicked problems of the world including climate change, disease cures and general human health.

A Bachelor of Nanoscience can be studied as a major under a Bachelor of Science or as a standalone degree at postgraduate level. Nanoscience incorporates a broad range of subjects including quantum physics, biophysics and biology. The degree will change the way you look at the world.
