ISSUES IN NANOTECHNOLOGY A
Credit points: 5
Students taking "Issues in Nanotechnology" will be expected to demonstrate a degree of subject understanding and discipline specific skills commensurate with the year level of the unit. Five seminars will be presented to students each semester by practitioners in the area of nanotechnology from academia, research organisations and industry. These will cover significant areas and new developments. Students will be required to provide written reports on the seminars which will grade from summaries and assessments of the seminars, to detailed analysis of the ideas presented supported by supplementary material. The assessment is by way of these reports which represent a significant time commitment by the students outside the assigned contact hours.
