University of Liverpool, UK, is inviting students from India to join engineers and scientists in the development of new materials for medical applications, product development and manufacturing systems. Through its two postgraduate degree programmes, including advanced manufacturing systems and technology, and advanced chemical sciences (nanoscale with materials chemistry), the university will support students in gaining knowledge and skills that they need to pursue careers in the manufacturing and engineering industry, as well as medical professions.
The one-year postgraduate course in advanced manufacturing systems and technology will show students how to become an expert in using technology, management and systems to create competitive, value-adding products for industry use. Also, the advanced chemical sciences (nanoscale with materials chemistry) programme allows students to develop their own postgraduate degree course based on students interests in the area of chemistry. Researchers from across the, faculty of science and engineering, health and life sciences, and humanities and social sciences have come together as part of the university's new materials for the future research theme. The team of researchers will address techniques for the investigation of biological systems, protection of physical structures, and the development of new energy-saving products. Students wanting to study materials at Liverpool will work with researchers at the Surface Science Research Centre, where scientists have recently recreated the first moments of water condensing on matter - a process vital for the formation of clouds in the atmosphere.Students interested in medical applications will also be able to work with the Centre for Materials and Structures, where engineers are working on the development of selective laser melting for the production of prosthetic implants for the human body. Both courses start in September 2012 and students are required to have completed a Bachelor's degree from a recognised university with a minimum first division qualification. Students should have English language skills at IELTS 6.5 with minimum 5.5 in each component for most programmes. Fees for 2012 are Rs 14,850.
