Year One - Master of Research (MRes)
The MRes will include 70 credits of classroom taught modules and a research project worth 110 credits, consisting of team and individual elements.
Taught modules can be selected from any m-level module offered by the College of Engineering and Physics Sciences. Selection and timetabling will be discussed with the supervisor and tutor at the beginning of the programme and tailored to the individual needs of the student.
The team element of the research project teaches technical, team working, project management, communication and presentation skills with an emphasis on responsible research and innovation. The individual element of the research project focuses on problems relevant to industry and will be carried out in close collaboration with industry partners. This will be assessed by a substantial thesis.
Years Two-Four – PhD
This will be a three-year long research project at one of the Hub’s partner universities. Secondments to industry or the National Physics Laboratory (NPL) can also be supported.
