Nanostructured Materials MSc by Research
View tabs | View full page
The Nanostructured Materials research degrees are part of a large and multidisciplinary activity within the School of Materials. We have strong links with industry and leading research councils.
The ability to characterise and manipulate the structure of matter on the nanoscale is fundamental to the development of advanced structural and functional materials. Our research, therefore, is broad-ranging and encompasses composites, fibres, surface-engineering and advanced characterisation techniques.
We have strong links with industry worldwide and our work impacts directly on current practice within the sector. Industrial sponsors of our research include DeBeers, Gatan, British Vita, and research and trade organisations EPSRC, DTI and EC.
Current research interests in this area include:
- Nanoporous substrates for tissue engineering
- Nanostructured surfaces for improved environmental resistance
- Nanoengineering using lasers
- Polymer nanocomposites
Additional fee information
For entry in 2009, the tuition fees are £3,400 per annum for home/EU students and £13,400 per annum for international students. For information on funding available, please visit: Research Funding
Scholarships and bursaries
You can apply for a range of scholarships and studentships - http://www.materials.manchester.ac.uk/postgraduate/studentships/
To underpin the research and teaching activities, we have established state-of-the-art laboratories, which allow comprehensive characterisation and development of materials. These facilities range from synthetic/textile fibre chemistry to materials processing and materials testing.
Practical support and advice for current students and applicants is available from the Disability Support Office. Email: email@example.com
