Bachelor of Science - Nanotechnology

Flinders University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Undergraduate
CRICOS: 00114A

Nanotechnology is available as a specialisation within Flinders' Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Science (Honours) degrees. Flinders' science degrees are flexible and permit students to move between degrees and specialisations easily. Nanotechnology is science at the molecular level and is a growth industry with the potential to change the world. It draws on the strengths of all the basic sciences and this course will give students a strong background in these sciences.


In first year all students study core topics in chemical structure and bonding, modern chemistry, fundamentals of nanotechnology, and the nature of science. Student also study mathematics, or mathematics fundamentals in the biomedical nanotechnology stream. In second year students will study core topics in chemical reactivity, organic reactions, spectroscopy and data analysis, and structure and characterisation with option topics in the biomedical nanotechnology stream study of linear algebra and differential equations, and quantum concepts in the quantum nanostructures stream. In third year students look at separation science, applied spectroscopy and electrochemistry, introduction to polymer science, and the frontiers of nanotechnology. Also studied is protein to proteome and DNA to genome in the biomedical nanotechnology stream in addition to applied mathematics methods and quantum physics in the quantum nanostructures stream.
