Covering the foundations of Implant dentistry right through to advanced treatment procedures, this innovative blended learning programme will give dentists' the skills and knowledge required to give the best treatment possible to their patients.
The programme is part-time and will run over the course of 2 years, commencing in February 2017. This technology driven qualification is delivered from a high class international faculty through which students will communicate with a diverse global community of peers.
The programme covers six units including:
- Unit 1: Foundations of Implant Dentistry
- Unit 2: Treatment Planning
- Unit 3: Surgical Techniques
- Unit 4: Prosthodontics
- Unit 5: Advanced Surgery
- Unit 6: Advanced Prosthodontics
The programme aims to:
- Provide an innovative programme that enhances current knowledge and clinical skills in Implant Dentistry
- To present sound academic theory and high quality practical training in Implant Dentistry by world class mentors
- To provide students with the confidence and ability to enhance their current clinical practice by incorporating the latest advances in technology and research
- To deliver learning using the latest technology enabling students to access the course regardless of places or time zone whilst maintaining their dental practice
As we believe that all our students should have an unrivalled learning experience, we will only be accepting a limited intake for the first cohort.

The Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering is seeking to appoint an MPhil student to conduct research for Eco-Innovation Cheshire and Warrington Industry Collaboration programme. Post Graduate fees are paid by the industrial sponsor for UK/EU students. Part funded by ERDF.
The company design and manufacture of energy efficient control and monitoring systems for the refrigeration industry. With 30 years industry experience and a focus on energy efficiency and energy reduction the company delivers direct and indirect energy savings, improved control and greater operational efficiency worldwide.
The proposed innovation adds an exciting new element/component to the refrigeration process. It will improve accuracy, optimise and significantly improve the efficiency of the process. It could be applied in a number of formats worldwide to deliver lower energy consumption, reduce equipment operation, reduce equipment maintenance and lower costs for retailers. The technology has the potential to save mega-tonnes of carbon and significantly contribute to the UK’s climate change targets by 2030.
In this project, you will apply electronics and electrical engineering skills to develop a suitable and commercially viable hardware product for sensing, verify sensor placement and the analysis of digital signals.
1. Establish/verify a low cost, robust and reliable sensor.
2. Verify the sensors ability to detect key signals for use with digital signal processing analysis.
3. Verify the best position and mount for optimised/accurate data and digital signal analysis.
4. Verify the sensor can operate in the varying conditions created by the refrigeration process.
5. Provide a report and evidence of the research and conclusions to the University of Chester and the company.
1. Knowledge of DSP tool such as MATLAB, Audacity or similar.
2. Skilled in electronics design for sensor interfaces.
3. Capability to use DSP tool, build interface circuits to micro processor.
First degree (2:1 or above) in Electronic and Electrical Engineering, Control Engineering, Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering or Mathematics (essential).
You will be a motivated and dynamic person, with a demonstrable capability to conduct independent research.
Applicants whose first language is not English must provide evidence of proficiency to IELTS 6.5 with no less than 5.5 in each band or equivalent.
This MPhil attracts a tax exempt stipend of £15,000 per annum. Post graduate fees are funded for UK/EU based students. International students will be required to make an additional contribution to their post graduate fees.
