Advanced Materials for Micro- and Nano-Systems (AMM&NS)
The AMM&NS degree programme offers a comprehensive and intensive approach to a field of study that stands at the forefront of the frontier of modern technologies. Students are exposed to the broad foundations of advanced materials that encompass processing, structure, properties and performance, with a particular emphasis on applications in microelectronics and emerging nanotechnologies. Fundamental understanding of the structure and properties of materials, coupled with system-driven design, fabrication and optimisation of materials comprise the core of the multi-disciplinary coursework that prepares students to lead in the development and exploitation of new materials for future micro- and nano-systems. The AMM&NS degree programme also promotes a practice-based understanding of the paths through which critical advances in the fundamental science and engineering of materials impact, and often set the pace for the rapid evolution of information processing, communication and sensing technologies, especially those based on systems of micro- and nano-scale devices. The AMM&NS graduate study also provides an exceptional opportunity for collaborative research between SMA students, world-renowned faculty and industry experts, both in Singapore and in the US. Students will have the opportunity to interact with scientists and engineers at a number of research institutes, such as IMRE and the Institute of Microelectronics (IME), as well as all three partner universities NUS, NTU and MIT.
