Course content

Postgraduate research study in nanomaterials science provides an opportunity to engage in rigorous scholarly pursuit, and contribute original research to a body of academia.

Students are able to advance their knowledge of nanomaterials science, while developing their research skills and working with specialists in the field. Throughout the programme, students may have the opportunity to develop national and international collaborations.

Specialist computational facilities and training programmes are designed to enhance research skills, together with support from dedicated academic supervisors. Students are encouraged and supported to submit papers to international scientific journals, present findings at conferences, and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Department specialisms

Staff in the School of Mathematics and Physics conduct cutting-edge research in fundamental and applied mathematics and physics, ranging from pure mathematics to applied nano-science at the interface between biology, chemistry, physics, and mathematics. The School collaborates with top research institutions in Germany, Japan, Norway, the Netherlands, Singapore, Spain, and the USA. Our research focuses on four key areas: Algebra, Astrophysics, Computational Physics, and Experimental Nanophysics. Main research areas in nanomaterials: Nanostructured Soft Matter Active Matter Materials Science Molecular Biophysics For detailed information about the School’s research activity please visit:
