Course summary

Nanotechnology involves the study of matter and machines down to scales of a billionth of a metre. From the tiny components that make our smartphones work to new medical diagnostic tools, it continues to change the world.This degree builds on the MPhys Physics programme, giving you a more advanced understanding of nanotechnology and nanoscience – and providing the skills you need to work at the nanoscale. You’ll be introduced to the fundamental concepts of nanoscience from year one, building on this in later years with more in-depth study of light and matter interactions, quantum devices and nanomaterials.With a robust physics training and specialist nanotechnology expertise, you’ll have a huge range of career options to choose from. Your experimental skills will be sought after in industry R&D, and you’ll be well equipped for further research at PhD level. If you decide on a career outside physics, your transferable skills, such as computation and coding, statistical analysis, communication and problem solving, will be in demand in numerous professions.The University of Southampton is a great place to study physics; we’re ranked fourth in the Russell Group for course satisfaction by the Guardian University Guide 2020. And we’ve placed in the top three in the Russell Group for overall student satisfaction in the National Student Survey (NSS) for the last four years*. This course is accredited by the Institute of Physics. *Not all Russell Group universities are returned in the NSS every year
