The School has in its disposal several research laboratories with excellent facilities that support our own research programmes and those taken by doctoral students. Our doctoral students have comfortable individual working spaces in close vicinity of the academic offices and laboratories.

The standard route for research study in the School is PhD via MPhil. Candidates with good previous research experience can apply for PhD Direct.
