Important update

We have discontinued the IMP from May 2015, offering modules on the IMP programme now only for students enrolled prior to this date and within their five years registration. We have instead developed a new MA programme, replacing the IMP. This launched in September 2016 providing some exciting new learning opportunities. We will continue to do all we can for past IMP students to see them through to achieving their masters either on the IMP route or via the new MA but please be in touch if you need to talk over the options open to you. Please note too that IMP information on these pages may be superseded by the latest University requirements, such as in regard to fees. Again, we will be happy to talk over changes - see website for further details:

Research profile

The Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP) brings together researchers from materials science and chemical, mechanical and bio-engineering, conducting world-class research into every conceivable kind of material.

Work covers the design, synthesis and processing of materials, as well as biomedical and process engineering. IMP has one of the UK's largest carbon capture engineering research groups, and particular strength in biomedical and biological engineering. The Institute has excellent laboratory facilities, including the latest instruments for research in adsorption, biomedical engineering, conversation materials science, high pressure and temperature advanced materials synthesis, ice mechanics, and particular strength in multiphase flows and multiscale modelling. We provide high-quality training in research for both postgraduate students and postdoctoral researchers.

Training and support

The development of transferable skills is a vital part of postgraduate training and a vibrant, interdisciplinary training programme is offered to all research students by the University’s Institute for Academic Development (IAD). The programme concentrates on the professional development of postgraduates, providing courses directly linked to postgraduate study.

Courses run by the IAD are free and have been designed to be as flexible as possible so that you can tailor the content and timing to your own requirements.

Our researchers are strongly encouraged to present their research at conferences and in journal during the course of their PhD.

Every year, the Graduate School organises a Postgraduate Research Conference to showcase the research carried out by students across the Research Institutes

Our researchers are also encouraged and supported to attend transferable skills courses provided by organisations such as the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC).

Facilities

The Institute has excellent laboratory facilities, including the latest instruments for research in adsorption, biomedical engineering, conservation materials science, high pressure and temperature advanced materials synthesis, ice mechanics, and multi-phase flows and multiscale modelling.

Research opportunities

We offer a comprehensive range of exciting research opportunities through a choice of postgraduate research degrees: MSc by Research, MPhil and PhD.

Masters by Research

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) degree resembles a PhD but generally takes two years instead of three and does not carry the same requirement for original contribution to knowledge. You pursue your individual research project under supervision, submitting your thesis at the end of the project.

Philosophy may sound dauntingly remote from our daily concerns, but its basic questions "What can I know? What may I hope? What must I do?" actually pose themselves throughout any thinking person's journey. Read more
Philosophy may sound dauntingly remote from our daily concerns, but its basic questions "What can I know? What may I hope? What must I do?" actually pose themselves throughout any thinking person's journey. And the skills it teaches — close reading, careful thinking, and the critique of ideas — apply to most areas of human endeavour. A background in philosophy is thus excellent training for many careers, and matchless preparation for life itself.

The graduate Certificate in Healthcare Ethics, which requires no previous background in philosophy, offers training in moral reasoning within the medical setting for those with undergraduate degrees who meet the graduate school’s and department’s entrance requirements. Students will develop skills in seeing, analysing, and resolving problems in the healthcare field. The certificate can be completed in three semesters.
