Advanced Materials are concerned with the structure and properties of materials which are enablers for technological innovation in biomedical devices, new energy, a sustainable environment, and new transportation. New materials developments have led to recent breakthroughs in “metamaterials”, nanotechnology and biomimetics, etc.
The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programme in Advanced Materials aims to provide rigorous training in both fundamental investigations of mesoscopic and atomic-scale mechanisms and related novel nanostructures, as well as engineering our original research results in various areas such as biomedicals, functional polymers, and smart meta-materials. New pedagogical training will be provided so that research students can acquire specialized and transferrable skills in new materials engineering that serve the related industries.
