MSc in Theory & Simulation of Materials

Course Description

The Department of Physics is leading an interdisciplinary Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) on Theory and Simulation of Materials.

The Centre offers a four-year PhD, the first year of which leads to an MSc. Self-funded students may take the MSc by itself as a 12-month full-time course.

This course is aimed at mathematically talented students who relish theoretical and computational treatments of condensed matter that are relevant to major issues facing society today, such as energy supply, global warming, health and security.

It provides a foundation in the theoretical physics of materials and its application in simulations across different length and time scales to problems of technological importance.

With strong links to industry, other leading academic institutions, and government labs in the UK and overseas, there are plenty of opportunities to engage with external organisations, including collaborative research projects.

Visit the MSc in Theory & Simulation of Materials page on the Imperial College London website for more details!
