68003 Nanotechnology Honours Research 1

There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.


Study in this subject is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge necessary for research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The principal activity is an individual research project in which the student, under supervision, plans and undertakes investigations in an area of nanotechnology or nanoscience of interest. Typically, the data collected are then subjected to analysis and interpretation under the guidance of the supervisor. Students learn to define objectives and aims, work to available time and resources, use appropriate research methods, critically assess information and develop complex arguments in detail. The two Nanotechnology Honours Research subjects, one taken in each session, combine to form a single, continuous research project. The findings of the research project are presented in a structured and integrated thesis, which comprises the main assessment component.
