Programme description

Instrumentation involves the measurement of phenomena ranging from nano-scale molecular processes in biological cells right through to macro-scale chemical processes in industrial reactors, including environmental monitoring, disease diagnosis, drug and explosive detection and molecular imaging for health-care and the life-sciences. To meet the measurement demands, research is conducted into new instrumentation exploiting a wide range of advanced chemical, biochemical and physical sensors that utilise optical spectroscopies, complex mass spectrometries such ion mobility and secondary ion mass spectrometry, laser generated ultra-sound, laser trapping, polymer microfabrication, microfluidics, optical fibre sensing and PET tomography. Application and development of  non invasive spectroscopic techniques to assess tissue viability, hospital based research.

Key words: Instrumentation, lasers, measurement, fibre optics, spectroscopy, sensors, sensor arrays

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Band A TBA; Band B £6,750; Band C £8,750; Band D £15,000
    International students (per annum): Band A £22,000; Band B £23,000; Band C £24,000; Band D £27,000
  • MPhil (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Band A TBA; Band B £3,375; Band C £4,375; Band D £7,750
    International students (per annum): Band A £11,000; Band B £11,500; Band C £12,000; Band D £13,500

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.
