Course content

The Nanostructured Materials research programmes are part of a large and multidisciplinary activity within the School of Materials. We have strong links with industry and leading research councils. The ability to characterise and manipulate the structure of matter on the nanoscale is fundamental to the development of advanced structural and functional materials. Our research, therefore, is broad-ranging and encompasses composites, fibres, surface-engineering and advanced characterisation techniques.
