The MRes programme provides a dedicated route for high calibre students who (may have a specific research aim in mind) are ready to carry out independent research leading to PhD level study or who are seeking a stand alone research based qualification suitable for a career in research with transferable skills for graduate employment.

It is the normal expectation that the independent research thesis (120 credits) should be of at a publishable standard in a high quality peer reviewed journal.

The MRes programme is a full time one year course consisting of 60 taught credits at the beginning of the programme which lead on to the 120 credit thesis.

Each MRes shares the taught element of the course, after successful completion of the taught element students are then able to specialise in a specific subject for their thesis.

Course programme

The taught provision has four distinct 15 credit modules that concentrate on specific generic skill. Modules: Modelling and Design: Focuses on the simulation and design of electronic devices using an advanced software package – COMSOL. This powerful commercial software package is extremely adaptable and can be used to simulate and design a very wide range of physical systems. Introduction to Nanotechnology and Microsystems: Focuses on the device fabrication techniques at the nano and micro scale, as well as introducing some of the diagnostic tools available to test the quality and characteristics of devices. Project Planning: Focuses on the skills required to scope, plan, execute and report the outcomes of a business and research project. Mini Project: Focuses on applying the skills and techniques to a mini project, whose theme will form the basis of the substantive research project. MRes Research Project: After the successful completions of the taught component of the programme, the major individual thesis will be undertaken within the world leading research groups of the School.
