Course Summary

Welcome to MSc by Research Computational Physics

Computational physics is a fundamental area of study that underpins a vast array of topics. This programme offers the opportunity to work with specialists in the field and the chance to develop strong national and international collaborations.

Researchers in the School of Mathematics and Physics have the opportunity to advance their knowledge of computational physics, whille developing key research skills.

Research in Computational Physics covers a broad spectrum, including the distinct areas of nanostructured soft matter, active matter, materials science, and molecular biophysics. Dedicated academic supervisors provide in-depth training programmes and students can benefit from the use of specialist computational facilities.

How You Study

Students can benefit from specialist computational facilities, training programmes to enhance research skills, and support from dedicated academic supervisors. There will be support and encouragement to submit papers to international scientific journals, and the opportunity to present findings at conferences and share knowledge with colleagues across the University.

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of time will be spent in independent study and research. Students will meet with their academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and the stage of their programme.

How You Are Assessed

The MSc by Research involves writing a Master's thesis under the supervision of a member of academic staff on a topic to be agreed with the supervisor. The MSc by Research is usually awarded based on the quality of the student's thesis and their ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend their chosen research topics.

Career Opportunities

This research programme enables students to expand their knowledge and expertise in an area of specific interest. It provides the opportunity to develop an in-depth foundation for further research or progression to careers across the broad spectrum of computational physics-related industries including technology, healthcare, engineering, and academia.
