Why choose this course
The Advanced Technology Institute programme from University of Surrey houses 160 researchers made up of engineers, physicists, materials scientists, biologists and chemists, approximately half of which are PhD students, allowing you to pursue truly multidisciplinary research.
It is likely you will have the opportunity to collaborate with scientists around the world, which will enhance your international outlook. As part of the larger Faculty Graduate School community, you will receive the training you need to become a fully-fledged researcher and drive the next generation of technology and innovation.
You will have access to ATI’s extensive set of equipment (over £40M invested) to fabricate, characterise, analyse and simulate, so that you can push the frontiers of physics and engineering, while also working closely with local, national, and international companies.
Additionally, you will be able to join the most appropriate professional institution based on your degree. This is nominally the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) and/or the Institute of Physics (IOP) as an Associate Member, and you will be entitled to apply for full membership after three years of postgraduate studies.
