Plastic Electronic Materials

Course Description

The Department of Physics leads a Centre for Doctoral Training in Plastic Electronics that aims to train and prepare doctoral scientists to move directly into this exciting, fast moving and interdisciplinary field.

A key part of the training is this 12-month MRes, which provides a thorough foundation in the science and application of plastic electronic materials.

The MRes course also offers practical training in diverse areas including microscopy, printing and processing, device fabrication and molecular modelling.

Visiting industrial lecturers will teach advanced courses in the state-of-the-art methods and technology. You also have the option to develop the MRes project as an entrepreneurship exercise.

Participating departments are Physics, Chemistry and Materials at Imperial and the School of Materials Science and Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London.
