Then learn here what is meant by nanoscience and the details of the course M.Sc Nanosicence. Learn about the eligibility criteria and the job prospects too.

Course Name: M.Sc Nanoscience
Group: M.Sc
Stream: Science
Course Category: Manufacturing
Duration: 2 Years

Overview


Nanoscience or nanotechnology is a new field of science that deals with the study of matter at subatomic scales, i.e. particles having sizes ranging in nanometers. To understand how big or small a nanometer is, one nanometer compares to only one billionth of a meter. At such scales one works with molecules and supramolecules. Ordinary optical microscopes can’t be used for working with them. It requires an electron microscope. The best thing about nanoscience is, it’s not restricted to only one branch of science. It’s finding applications in every field, whether physics, chemistry, biology, material science or even engineering.

Eligibility and course duration


B.Sc in any of the science subjects such as physics, chemistry and life sciences with minimum 55% marks in aggregate. Or an engineering degree in material science, chemical, electronics, mechanical, biotechnology or computer science.

Duration of this postrgraduate program is 2 years.

More about nanosciences


Nanoscience is increasingly finding applications in our day to day life. With advances in technology taking place at an increasingly faster rate, we are likely to see a lot more of such developments. From metals, polymers, ceramics, electronic components, biomedical devices to producing household appliances, they are used almost everywhere. They are even used in food packaging by using the concept of silver nanoparticles. The technique of nanotechnology is also used for manufacturing goods like sunglasses, cosmetics, CD and DVD players.

Among the topics that are studied in this field are fundamentals of nanoscience, solid state physics, microsystems and nanotechnology, nano-scale materials, nano-synthesis and manufacturing, nanomaterials characterization, sensor technology and so on.

Job opportunities


The field of nanoscience and nanotechnology is still new in the country. A lot of developments are yet to take place. The country is however taking measures in this respect by popularizing the field through postgraduate and doctoral programs in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Initiative is also being taken by setting up research and development labs across the country. However, for postgraduate and doctoral students there’s a lot of scope for research or employment in the western countries. There are many research institutes including the educational ones who are into advanced research. One can also find employment in industries such as electronics, healthcare, medical research, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, food packaging, etc. where nanotechnology is being used for commercial production. For advancing your learning in this field, it will be best to first undergo a PhD in the country or abroad.
