Successful candidates will have an aptitude for theory and simulation and already have, or expect to achieve, a first class (or equivalent) Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in the physical sciences or a branch of engineering.
Months of entry
The aim of the course is to train a new generation of multi-disciplinary scientists who relish the challenge of understanding mathematically complex physical phenomena, and who want to apply their talent for theory to tackle some of the most pressing technological challenges facing modern society.
The course provides a cutting-edge multidisciplinary educational and research environment in the theory and simulation of materials across length and time scales, to enable students to learn how to look at materials problems from different perspectives. To achieve this, the first year MSc course will provide a rigorous training in the required theoretical methods and simulation techniques. The PhD research project, which occupies years 2-4, will have two supervisors whose combined expertise will bridge multiple length and time scales. A key emphasis of research projects will be on the development and implementation of new theory and code for materials simulation.
