MSc in Materials Engineering and Nanotechnology 

Programme Leader :Prof Lawrence CM Wu

Deputy Programme Leader : Prof. KM Yu

Programme Structure - (Combined Mode: Full-time or Part-time)

The programme is offered in a 2-year part-time evening mode which extends over 4 semesters, or in one year full-time mode consisting of two semesters.  Students must earn a minimum of 30 credit units (CUs) in order to be eligible for the MSc award. The structure of the programme follows the credit unit system of the University. The programme curriculum consists of core and elective courses. Each course is scheduled over a period of 13 teaching weeks (1 semester). 

There are three required core courses that provide fundamental knowledge in structured materials structures (nano and traditional) and instrumental methods of analysis.  Full-time students can obtain the MSc degree within one year by taking 9 credit units of required courses and 21 units of elective courses..
