Advanced Nanoscience and Molecular Structure (858C1)

15 credits, Level 7 (Masters)

Spring teaching

This module explores the latest advances in experimental and theoretical approaches to molecular structure and nanomaterials. It is based on recent developments in the subject, combining lectures and workshops, research talks, directed and independent reading and a critical work. Lectures will present current advances, with a focus on quantum methods in molecular structure calculations and experimental approaches to understanding the unique properties of matter at the nanoscale. Workshops will provide a discussion forum for problem-solving activities.

Teaching and assessment

We’re currently reviewing teaching and assessment of our modules in light of the COVID-19 situation. We’ll publish the latest information as soon as possible.

Contact hours and workload

This module is approximately 150 hours of work. This breaks down into about 26 hours of contact time and about 124 hours of independent study. The University may make minor variations to the contact hours for operational reasons, including timetabling requirements.

This module is running in the academic year 2020/21. We also plan to offer it in future academic years. It may become unavailable due to staff availability, student demand or updates to our curriculum. We’ll make sure to let our applicants know of such changes to modules at the earliest opportunity.
