BSc in Science with Nanotechnology


In 2006 DIT launched Irelands first nanotechnology degree. Called BSc in Science with Nanotechnology (CAO code DT227), it is a joint venture between the School of Physics and the School of Chemical and Pharmaceutical Science.

The aim is to introduce students to the techniques, tools and potential of nanoscience and technology, while at the same time maintaining the fundamental chemistry and physics knowledge that would be required by a graduate in the respective fields.

To this end, the course consists of core physics and chemistry modules in addition to dedicated nanotechnology modules. In third year, the candidate decides to major in either physics or chemistry, with a minor in the other.

In the third year of the course, there is an industrial placement in the second semester.
