The Nanostructured Materials research programmes 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
Our Open Days provide a great opportunity to take a look at the School, discover more about our courses and research, and find out what Manchester has to offer you.
International students - if you are based overseas and can't make our Open Days, please visit the international section of our website to see if a member of our International Team will be visiting your country soon.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2016, the tuition fees are as follows:
- PhD (full-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): £4,121
International students (per annum): Standard £20,000, Low £21,000, High £23,000
- PhD (part-time)
UK/EU students (per annum): £2,060
International students (per annum): Standard £10,000, Low £10,500 High£11,500
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
