Engineering - Materials PhD Unit Set
The Materials Research Group conducts research in the design, synthesis, microstructure characterisation and properties evaluation of advanced materials for various engineering applications.
The Group is currently undertaking research in the following key areas of interdisciplinary material research: design, synthesis and advanced characterisation of materials; mechanical behaviour and deformation mechanisms; light-weight alloys and their composites; functional nanomaterials for water treatment; biomaterials and composites; and corrosion behaviour. The major is designed for students and researchers wishing to pursue research activities in our research group, and for industry seeking solutions or collaborations in relevant research areas through Research and Development including: 3D Print of metallic materials; Biomedical titanium alloys and composites; Nanocrystalline light-weight alloys; and Nanomaterials for water treatment.
Special entry requirements
It is desirable that all applicants do not contact potential supervisors before applying. Applicants will be matched with a suitable supervisor if successful in gaining course admission.
Availability & Campus
Candidates are expected to meet regularly with their supervisors as part of the supervised independent research component of the course.
