Bachelor of Technology (Nanotechnology)
Bachelor of Technology (Nanotechnology)
Students from all curriculua must have studied higher level Physics, Chemistry and Maths. A minimum 50% aggregate in CBSE grades X & XII with a minimum of 60% in PCM/PCB, or the equivalent from alternative schools, is required.
Why choose this field?
Nanotechnology is highly interdisciplinary, involving physics, chemistry, biology, materials science and the full range of engineering disciplines. By studying substances on atomic scales and developing the capability to manipulate them, new materials and systems can be created with specific, unique properties.
The potential impact of nanotechnology is expected to be far reaching, touching nearly every aspect of our lives. By 2020, the industry is expected to reach US$ 75.8 billion globally whilst the annual worldwide market for products incorporating Nanotechnology is expected to reach US$ 3.3 trillion.
The 4-year B.Tech. Nanotechnology programme at Amity University Dubai gives students a sound understanding of the applications of Nanotechnology & Nanoscience in a wide range of areas including basic sciences, engineering, healthcare, the electronics industry, pharmaceuticals, research and agriculture.
Students are required to take a certain number of credit units from each of the categories.
The B.Tech (Nanotechnology) programme spans across eight semesters and focuses on:
- Basic technological knowledge of nano materials and devices
- Application of Nanotechnology & Nanoscience in a wide range of areas including basic sciences, engineering, healthcare, electronics industry, pharmaceuticals, research and agriculture.
- Prepare student for the development of innovative technologies for above areas in societal benefits.
- Inculcate moral value, professional ethics and business communication skills in the students.
There are endless careers available in the electronics and semiconductor industry including materials science, textiles, polymers, auto and aerospace industries, pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, optoelectronics, environmental monitoring and control, food science including quality control and packaging, forensics and military. There’s also scope for research opportunities in the world’s leading institutes and universities.
What will students achieve?
The aim of this programme is to extend students’ knowledge of nanoscience and nanotechnology and its application for technological development.
Students will be able to exhibit a comprehensive and critical understanding of nanoscience and nanotechnology for improvement in all spheres.
Graduates will be able to recognise the impact of nanosceince and nanotechnology and better understand the scientific principles in relation to professional scientific practices, and apply the fundamental and specialised knowledge of the discipline to their own professional practice. They will gain the ability to make decisions on the basis of rigorous and independent thought, taking into account ethical and professional issues.
Every student will demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the scientific principles and be able to successfully apply them – either as a member of a team or a leader, in multidisciplinary environments.
Graduates will be able to successfully identify the impact of the nanoscience and nanotechnology solutions in societal and environmental contexts, and demonstrate the knowledge and need for sustainable development.
Students will be able to demonstrate a confident familiarity with a wide range of information technology skills in order to communicate effectively using scientific techniques, reports and presentations, and be able to apply software for scientific data analysis.
Every student will exhibit originality in the application of nanosceince and nanotechnology and be able to make use of practical techniques for problem-solving.
Graduates will be able to communicate effectively on all activities regarding nanoscience and nanotechnology, whether in a written, verbal or visual manner.
