About this course

This program gives you the skills and knowledge to work in the rapidly growing area of nanotechnology.

Nanotechnology is the science and engineering of material less than a micrometre. Nanotechnology requires a broad knowledge of science as well as the ability to apply this knowledge to produce innovative processes or devices.

This double degree program is multidisciplinary, combining nanotechnology with physics or chemistry. It covers physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience/nanotechnology. There is a strong emphasis on using instruments and communication.

You will receive a strong grounding in nanotechnology, with the opportunity to major in either chemistry or physics.

Nanotechnologists design and engineer materials, machines and systems capable of imaging and manipulating single molecules or atoms.

Why study nanotechnology at RMIT?
  1. RMIT is at the forefront of education and research in the rapidly evolving field of nanotechnology - the science and engineering of materials less than a micrometre in size.
  2. Reflecting nanotechnology’s multidisciplinary nature, RMIT’s double degree encompasses physical, chemical, biological and engineering nanoscience and nanotechnology.
  3. RMIT’s equipment and facilities are purpose-built and readily accessible, including the $30 million MicroNano Research Facility which is driving leading advances in micro- and nanotechnologies.

Entry requirements

The highest level of education you have previously completed will determine which category applies to you.

Entry to this program is competitive. Applicants are ranked and selected in order of merit based on their academic achievement, e.g., ATAR or GPA (including any adjustments).

Applicants with recent secondary education (current or within the past two years)

Successful completion of an Australian Year 12 senior secondary certificate of education or equivalent in 2016, 2017 or 2018. If applicable, this includes equity access schemes and any other adjustment factors.

School Network Access Program (SNAP)

The SNAP access scheme is designed to increase tertiary access and participation of eligible students from SNAP partner schools.

Applicants with Vocational Education and Training study

Satisfactory completion of an Australian Certificate IV or above or equivalent.

Applicants with Higher Education study

Satisfactory completion of at least four courses (subjects) at an Australian undergraduate level or overseas equivalent.

Applicants with Work and Life Experience

Satisfactory completion of an Australian Year 12 senior secondary certificate of education or equivalent more then two years ago.

You must sit the Special Tertiary Admissions Test (STAT) Multiple Choice if:

  • You have no prior Year 12, VET qualifications, HE results or relevant work experience that meet the minimum entry requirements for the program; and
  • You are 19 years of age or over (as of 1 Jan 2019) and have not enrolled in secondary studies for at least two years.

The STAT Multiple Choice will satisfy Year 12 English and Year 11 Mathematics prerequisites. Applicants must meet all other prerequisites or equivalents. Learn more about RMIT STAT results.
