This course allows you to undertake research into a specific area of materials and fluid flow modelling. This varied subject encompasses everything from liquid crystals and polymers to hemodynamics. Your work will join extremely well-regarded MERI publications - a high proportion of which are considered 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

How you learn

As this is a research course, most of your work will be carried out independently. You will benefit from the support and expertise of your supervisory team; including a Director of Studies and a second supervisor who have specific interest in your chosen subject area. Indicative topic areas include liquid crystals, self-assembled structures and foods, and you may use wide-ranging simulation methods - molecular dynamics or Monte Carlo, for example - for your work.
