Content

The Masters in Advanced Functional Materials is an inherently multidisciplinary subject that spans Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Nanotechnology.

It underpins many of aspects of modern life and its themes are at the heart of global technological challenges, including energy generation and storage, microelectronics and healthcare. University of Glasgow research in the area has spanned the development of photovoltaics for enhanced solar energy systems, next-generation data storage technologies and characterisation of alloys for nuclear reactor design.

Modes of delivery of the MSc Advanced Functional Materials include lectures, seminars and tutorials and allow students the opportunity to take part in practical lab, and independent project work. In the final part of the programme, you will undertake a research project which will be supervised by a member of staff who works within the area of Materials Science. This extended project will give an opportunity to be embedded into a research group, working at the cutting edge of their particular field.
