Australian University Offers Undergraduate Degree Program in Nanotechnology

from the Groves-of-academe dept.

Flinders University, located in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia (about 750 km northwest of Melbourne) is offering a Bachelor of Science program in Nanotechnology. The BSc degree is an honours specialization of a general science degree program, adding nanotechnology-related courses to a curriculum that includes math, physics, chemistry and biology. A description of the program can be found on the Flinders web site, along with an overview of the coursework required for the program. There are apparently not yet any similar post-graduate programs in place.

This is the second degree-oriented academic program directly targeting nanotechnology that has come to our notice; the University of Washington (Seattle, USA) has initiated a doctoral (PhD) program in nanotechnology.
