Master’s Students

If you are a student based in the School of Metallurgy & Materials and studying Material Science and Engineering (MEng) or Mechanical and Materials Engineering (MEng) you may be able to join the group for your final year research project. The coordinator for your course will be able to provide more information on this.

Summer Students

If you are in your antepenultimate or penultimate year of a materials-related degree and studying at the University of Birmingham you may be able to undertake a summer project within the research group. Contact your School or Emma Kendrick to find out whether any funding is available to complete a 6-8 week project – this is an excellent chance to get research experience and find out whether a career in science appeals to you!
