Our Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering research is consistently ranked amongst the top 10 in the UK and top 5 in Scotland, recently achieving 1st in Scotland and 6th in the UK (Guardian University Guide 2014).
You will have access to the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre (JWNC) and the Kelvin Nanocharacterisation Centre. The JWNC holds a number of world records in nanofabrication including for the performance of nanoscale electronic and optoelectronic devices.
Over 250 international companies have worked with the JWNC in the last five years. Over 90 different universities from around the globe collaborate with us in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
PhD students at University of Glasgow iwill have at least two supervisors, one of whom will be very closely engaged in their research. With over 50 students in the Division, students enjoy a great sense of camaraderie, and often life-long friendships are formed.
You will be part of a Graduate School which provides the highest level of support to its students.
The overall aim of our Graduate School is to provide a world-leading environment for students which is intellectually stimulating, encourages them to contribute to culture, society and the economy and enables them to become leaders in a global environment.
Our graduates have excellent prospects ranging from careers in academia,to start-up entrepreneurship, to blue-chip engineering. Recent examples include:
- a research fellowship in the USA
- pioneering gene sequencing technology with a US start-up
- joining a GU spin-out to build PhD research into a new product
- joining a major integrated circuit design company.
The Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering programme is offered at University of Glasgow.
