CDT: The 4 Year Course
We are no longer accepting new students on the 4-year CDT course.
Existing CDT students first take a 12 month MRes programme, the MRes in Plastic Electronic Materials. This course teaches the physics, chemistry, materials science and device engineering of plastic electronic materials. The MRes also involves an interdisciplinary research project, which continues through the PhD. Students receive hands-on training through Advanced & Practical Skills Courses, in diverse areas including microscopy, printing and processing, device fabrication, and molecular modelling.
During the PhD (3 years), students pursue their chosen research area in depth, under the guidance of two supervisors from different disciplines. There is also continuing participation in advanced courses and professional skills development.
All PE-CDT studentships are aligned with a research project.
