MPhil - Master of Philosophy
Pharmacology Toxicology Forensic Science (Non-Medical)
Research in this area develops, characterises and analyses a vast array of advanced functional materials. These materials range from responsive biomaterials for regenerative medicine, crystal growth and characterisation for the pharmaceutical industry, spectroscopic and optical characterisation of materials in the nuclear industry, gas sensing and biomolecular lab-on-a-chip detection and biomedical diagnostics. Further information about this research area is available here.
The Department of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science is a world leader in industrially relevant research and teaching in chemical engineering and related subjects.
We undertake leading-edge multidisciplinary, creative and relevant research on a wide range of topics. Focused on advancing the science and engineering of complex systems and addressing different scales and levels of complexity, the research in the Department is carried out within four main research themes:
Our breadth of research expertise and highly advanced facilities make us an ideal choice whatever your doctoral interest.
Facilitating research across chemical engineering and bioscience, chemistry, mathematics and analytical and measurement science, means we can offer you the benefits of a large multidisciplinary institution at the same time as ensuring you are given personal support for your professional development.
Coursework and assessment
Students will meet regularly with an academic project supervisor, who is responsible for the project, ensuring that facilities and training are available to make good progress. Annual progress reviews will take place with an independent academic mentor to ensure that the supervision arrangements and progress are satisfactory.
All research programmes have personal and professional development training units to enhance transferable skills. Training courses cover themes such as thesis writing, business skills, career management and presentation skills.
