About

This Natural Sciences specialising in Nanoscience (Hons) course at the University of York draws together the resources of four central scientific disciplines – chemistry, electronics, physics and mathematics – to delve deep into the hidden world of atoms and molecules. This is a world measured to the nanometer, where a human hair is about 100,000 nanometres thick.

Overview

In the Natural Sciences specialising in Nanoscience (Hons)  course at the University of York , you will develop laboratory skills in our clean room and your final year project could be conducted in and supervised by the York-JEOL Nanocentre. This purpose-built reserach centre is equipped with some of the world’s most sensitive and sophisticated microscopes and enables researchers to see what is happening at the atomic level.

All our Natural Sciences BSc degrees have the same course code for your UCAS application. To select the Natural Sciences specialising in Nanoscience pathway, enter the subject option code "Nano". We will ask you to confirm your pathway if you are invited to interview.

Careers and skills

A Natural Sciences degree is a versatile course that will provide you with the skills and experience to succeed in a wide range of careers. With the Natural Sciences specialising in Nanoscience course, you will be equipped to:

  • formulate problems in nanoscience and use special and limiting cases
  • use order of magnitude estimates in problem solving
  • plan, execute and report the results of an experiment or project, using appropriate methods to analyse data and evaluate its uncertainty
  • critically compare the results or experiments with those of model calculations
  • relate conclusions to theories of the nanoscience
  • use mathematics to describe the nanoscience world, including an understanding of mathematical modelling and of the role of approximations
  • present complex nanoscience principles in a clear and precise manner.
