Course summary

Programme overview

This interdisciplinary programme will provide you with the skills, knowledge and expertise to become a practitioner in functional materials research, whether in industry or academia. Our graduates have a strong track record of progressing to full-time employment or further study, with around half obtaining PhD places in Bristol or other leading universities throughout the world.

The programme is run by the Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (BCFN), which engages with a network of more than 100 academics from 15 departments in the Faculties of Science, Engineering and Life Sciences. This rich and diverse community provides truly interdisciplinary training and challenging projects at the cutting edge of functional materials research.

The structure of the programme - featuring both short training projects and an extended research project - provides multiple opportunities for direct contact with leading academics and industry partners across a wide range of research areas. You will choose your extended research project after exploring BCFN's research network through short projects and the teaching programme. Recent project titles have included ‘Tunable Fluorescent Carbon Dots for Digital Display Technologies', ‘Nanoscale Bi/Sb Chalcohalides for Solar Energy Conversion’ and ‘Silk-Bone: a New Spin on Bone-tissue Engineering’.

Throughout the programme you will have opportunities to further your technical and professional development in research skills, delivering effective presentations, scientific writing, teamwork, creativity and entrepreneurship.

Careers

The combination of skills training and interaction with world-class functional materials research means that graduates of this programme have either started a PhD or successfully obtained full-time employment.
