Study type Research


•Undertake a period of intensive, supervised study as part of Sheffield Hallam's research community •Closely analyse ceramics, glasses and polymers, and their applications •Conduct your experiments in cutting-edge facilities •Study at the internationally-recognised Materials and Engineering Research Institute (MERI)

On this course, you'll undertake a supervised, extensive study on a relevant subject within glasses, materials and polymers. In the Materials and Engineering Research Institute (MERI), you'll benefit from expert tutelage, cutting-edge facilities and a supportive environment. Your finished work will stand alongside widely acclaimed MERI publications - a large proportion of which have been considered 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

How you learn

As this is a research course, most of your work will be carried out independently. You will benefit from the support and expertise of your supervisory team; including a Director of Studies and a second supervisor who have specific interest in your chosen subject area. This may include auxetic materials, biomaterials, bullet-proof and abrasion-resistant ceramics, energy reduction in glass manufacture, medical devices, nuclear waste containment and thermoelectric oxides.

You learn through •Independent research •Mentoring with your supervisory team •Laboratory training •Research and teacher training •Ethical research training •Participation in the MERI Research Colloquium •presenting posters and oral presentations
