Course content

We are a vibrant research community with a passion for understanding the physical and chemical processes that occur in functional interfaces. Surfaces and their relationship with the environment often dictate how an engineering system performs. We recognise that processes at the nanoscale can affect performance through to the macro scale.

Our research activity is conducted in but not limited to the following areas:


Surface engineering

Corrosion and flow assurance
