Course content

This PhD degree programme is part of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Compound Semiconductor Manufacturing. The centre is led by Cardiff University working closely with partner universities, Manchester and Sheffield, and University College London (UCL). The centre is also closely linked to the Compound Semiconductor Cluster, which is made up of a number of centres and companies working collaboratively to drive economic growth and to provide research and development in compound semiconductor technology and manufacturing.

The CDT will support postgraduate students to develop advanced knowledge and skills in compound semiconductor technology as well as developing research and professional skills and an understanding of the industry. Full EPSRC PhD studentships will be awarded to successful applicants.

The first year is comprised of a taught programme based upon either the MSc Compound Semiconductor Physics (optoelectronics) or the MSc Compound Semiconductor Electronics, depending on the applicant’s interests and background, and will be undertaken at Cardiff University. You will also develop your PhD project alongside academic and industrial supervisors.

You will then decide on the area in which you wish to specialise, and which University best fits your needs. All four universities are at the forefront of compound semiconductor research and have state-of-the-art facilities and internationally recognised expertise to support your studies.
