Nano-mechanics, a branch of nanoscience, studies and deals with application and fundamental mechanical properties (elastic, thermal and kinetic) of physical systems at the nanometer-scale where this [course_title] focuses on the study of forces and motion on extremely tiny areas of synthetic and biological materials and structures. Mingling with theoretical-component and experimental-data, this [course_title] will facilitate your learning by discussing high-resolution force-spectroscopy, atomistic-aspects of adhesion, nanoindentation, molecular-details of fracture, molecular-motors etc.


This course does not involve any written exams. Students need to answer 5 assignment questions to complete the course, the answers will be in the form of written work in pdf or word. Students can write the answers in their own time. Each answer needs to be 200 words (1 Page). Once the answers are submitted, the tutor will check and assess the work.


Edukite courses are free to study. To successfully complete a course you must submit all the assignment of the course as part of the assessment. Upon successful completion of a course, you can choose to make your achievement formal by obtaining your Certificate at a cost of £49.

Having an Official Edukite Certification is a great way to celebrate and share your success. You can:

  • Add the certificate to your CV or resume and brighten up your career
