Course summary

Overview At Newcastle University you'll get the chance to:

  • thrive on interdisciplinary challenges
  • collaborate with industrial partners
  • create your own spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.
MPhil and PhD supervision is available in:
  • micro and nanoscale design, fabrication, manufacturing and manipulation
  • top-down and bottom-up fabrication
  • nanoscale materials and electronics
  • applications of nano and microelectronics in medical science (cell biology, neuroscience, human genetics and ageing)
  • polymers
  • self-assembly
  • chemistry of nanoscale systems
  • biomolecular engineering - microfluids, bioprobes and biosensor systems, MEMS/NEMS-based sensors and device.
Many research projects cross the disciplinary boundaries of:
  • medicine
  • engineering
  • the physical sciences.
Depending on the source of funding, your project may involve collaboration with:
  • an industry partner
  • working in a team with other students.
You might develop an idea to the point where, following your degree, you can create a spin-off company. This would have potential to commercialise the results of your research. Facilities: nanoLAB, one of the University’s research centres, brings together our cross-disciplinary research in: biomedical science nanoelectronics nano-electromechanical systems (NEMS) chemistry materials. Our facilities include some of the best-equipped micro/nano device fabrication facilities in the UK. This includes: clean rooms for fabrication of bio-nano devices, electrical and material characterisation specialist equipment that can operate with nanometre scale resolution the national X-ray Photoelectron Spectroscopy (XPS) service, NEXUS.
