This interdisciplinary programme will provide you with the skills, knowledge and expertise to become a practitioner in functional materials research, whether in industry or academia. Our graduates have a strong track record of progressing to full-time employment or further study, with around half obtaining PhD places in Bristol or other leading universities throughout the world.
The structure of the programme - featuring both short training projects and an extended research project - provides multiple opportunities for direct contact with leading academics and industry partners across a wide range of research areas. You will choose your extended research project after exploring BCFN's research network through short projects and the teaching programme. Recent project titles have included ‘Tunable Fluorescent Carbon Dots for Digital Display Technologies', ‘Nanoscale Bi/Sb Chalcohalides for Solar Energy Conversion’ and ‘Silk-Bone: a New Spin on Bone-tissue Engineering’.
