About the course
The application of science and technology at the nano-scale is revolutionising medicine in the 21st Century – enabling us to understand many diseases leading to new insights in diagnostics and therapy and contributing to the development of new generations of medicinal products.
Increasing demand and awareness of applications of nanotechnology in medicine has resulted in the emergence of a new discipline, namely nanomedicine which is now growing at a rapid rate – already solving many challenges faced within various professional bodies, such as healthcare systems, government agencies and industrial companies.
Developed in response to industry and society demand – Cranfield’s Nanomedicine course, is a highly unique course in that it bridges the gap between nanotechnology and medicine, providing students with advanced knowledge, skills and practical experience of the principles, technology and applications within this exciting area.
The course will provide essential training for new graduates in the nanotechnology and medicine arena – naturally following on from a first degree in a science or technology related subject. The course will also provide advanced in-post training for professionals already working in a variety of related industries. Available on a full and part-time basis the course offers flexibility and support for those who wish to study whilst remaining in employment.
The MSc course comprises a formal taught ten-module course and a five-month research project and thesis.
Students can benefit from an industry project placement, encouraging them to make contact with potential employers before even completing their degree. Part time students normally carry out their project at their place of work allowing them to apply their learning and make a difference in their own environment.
