Career Focus: Nanotechnology

NanotechnologyImageCan you imagine this conversation:

Question: What do you do?

LOL… even Sheldon would be impressed with that answer!

La Trobe

All joking aside, Nanotechnology is HUGE (for something so teensy)… and you can study:

  • Bachelor of Nanotechnology / Bachelor of Science (4.5 years), OR
  • Bachelor of Science (Honours) / Master of Nanotechnology (5 Years)

Start smaller than you can ever imagine at: (opens in new window).


RMIT also has some terrific Nanotechnology courses for you to consider:

  • You can start with a Bachelor of Sciences (Applied Sciences) / (Honours) then scoot on over to conduct some neat research via Masters then a Ph.D. in a number of different fields.
  • Check out the facts here. RMIT Nanotechnology


Once you have a relevant science degree under your belt, you might choose to do a Masters or Ph.D. at the research facility at Deakin.

And some BASIC Nano stuff…

Confused about quals?

It CAN be confusing about the levels of Uni qualifications. Here is a simple list:

  • Bachelor Degree (this means a ‘single’ degree)
  • Undergraduate Degree (same thing as a Bachelors Degree)
  • Double Degree – you can get a two-in-one combo deal.
  • Graduate – you HAVE a Bachelors Degree
  • Honours – spend extra time (usually 1.5 to 2 years) studying in a subject area you love.
  • Masters – even MORE study (via research or coursework) in an area you love.
  • PhD – a ‘Doctor of Philosophy’ or ‘Doctorate’ is the highest level qualification you can achieve.
