Research Project module details

Module Title - Research Project  

Module description

This is a core module and can be carried out in a broad range of topics related to Materials Science.  The School will provide the research supervisor and will arrange for all necessary facilities and resources.  

Alternatively, the research project can be carried out in an industrial research laboratory with both academic and industrial supervisors.  This route is suitable for candidates seconded from industry. 

The project involves full-time research for two thirds of the academic year (or the part-time equivalent).  It is assessed by examination of the thesis (maximum of 15,000 words in length) with a full academic year to submit following your module completion and experimental work in the labs. Part time students will have two years during the write-up period following end of two years normal registration.
