Overview

Bionanotechnology is an emerging field that combines principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics to understand and control biological processes at the molecular level.

Using bionanotechnological approaches, revolutionary advances are being made in the biomedical sciences, varying from the visualization and manipulation of individual molecules, the use of nanoparticles to deliver drugs to specific sites in the body and the development of nanofabricated architecture to read out the sequence of DNA.

The Bionanotechnology (Honours) programme from University of Wollongong will give you the knowledge and concepts associated with bionanotechnology, knowledge of the principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics associated with the understanding and control of biological processes at the molecular level. In the final year, you will undertake a substantial piece of supervised research, together with other required seminar and/or course work.

Course Learning Outcomes

  • Demonstrate extensive and coherent knowledge of the principles and concepts associated with bionanotechnology.
  • Demonstrate extensive and coherent knowledge of the principles from biology, physics, chemistry, and mathematics associated with the understanding and control of biological processes at the molecular level.
