The CDT in Computational Methods for Materials Science (CMMS) is a four-year postgraduate programme. It consists of a taught first year (the MPhil in Scientific Computing) followed by a three-year PhD research project.

Covid-19 update for students starting in October 2020

Due to the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and government guidance, we have had to make some changes to the delivery, but not the content, of the programme for 2020-21 in order to mitigate against risks to health and to give students the best possible academic experience in the circumstances. We will continue to monitor and respond to the changing public health situation.

The changes are:

  • All lectures will be delivered online;

  • Small group teaching will be delivered in person or online, as appropriate to the circumstances of students and staff;

  • Supervisions will be delivered in person or online, as appropriate to the circumstances of students and staff.

Introduction to the Centre

The development of new materials lies at the heart of many of the technological challenges we currently face, for example creating advanced materials for energy generation. Computational modelling plays an increasingly important role in the understanding, development and optimisation of new materials. Our CDT will train young scientists not only in the use of existing modelling methods but also in the underlying computational and mathematical techniques. This will allow them to develop and enhance existing methods, for instance by introducing new capabilities and functionalities, and also to create innovative new software tools for materials modelling in industrial and academic research.
