All students will undertake the following group project in the spring term, which involve around 80 hours of contact time, collaborative work and private study. The course is student-led and the students will be responsible for most aspects of the course, including setting their own goals, deadlines and workload distribution.

Group Research Strategy Project: Dr Arash Mostofi 

The objective of this project is to enable students to experience the process from being presented with a challenging materials-related problem, all the way through to writing a research proposal on how to tackle it using theory and simulation. Students will work together in groups, thereby providing direct experience of collaboration and teamwork, which are essential in modern scientific research.
