About

The Advanced Functional Materials programme of the University of Glasgow is an inherently multidisciplinary programme that spans Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science and Nanotechnology.

Overview

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.

Why this programme

  • The School of Physics and Astronomy plays a leading role in the exploitation of data from the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest particle accelerator at CERN.
  • The School has close links with Sellafield Ltd. and the UK National Nuclear Laboratory in the area of nuclear fuel reprocessing and nuclear waste management.
  • The School of Physics & Astronomy hosts the Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre, which houses state-of-the-art instrumentation for studying materials at the nanoscale or below.
  • The School of Physics & Astronomy plays a world-leading role in the design and operation of the worldwide network of laser interferometers that have detected gravitational waves.
  • With the Advanced Functional Materials programme of the University of Glasgow you will also benefit from our membership of the Scottish Universities Physics Alliance. The alliance brings together internationally leading Physics research across Scotland to form the largest physics grouping in the UK.
  • You will gain the theoretical, observational and computational skills necessary to analyse and solve advanced Materials Science problems, providing you with an excellent foundation for a career of scientific leadership in academia or industry.
  • You will develop transferable skills that will improve your career prospects, such as project management, team-working, advanced data analysis, problem-solving, critical evaluation of scientific literature, advanced laboratory and computing skills, and how to effectively communicate with different audiences.
  • The School of Physics and Astronomy has an Athena Swan Silver Award, and the School of Chemistry has an Athena Swan Bronze Award, demonstrating the support for women and under-represented groups in scientific studies and careers, with the goal to improve the working environment for all.
  • It is expected that the programme will be accredited by the Institute of Physics.

Career Prospects
