• Semiconductor Technology and Applications MSc FT PT

Chemistry is thriving at Swansea, spanning a wide range of fields, and our research is set to multiply at a rapid pace over the next three years. Our research groups are currently focused on four themes: Energy; Health; New and Advanced Molecules and Materials; and Water and the Environment. These initiatives transcend traditional discipline boundaries and integrate core areas of organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistries while intersecting with engineering, medicine, and other scientific disciplines.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT • The MSc covers all aspects of semiconductor materials and technologies from silicon to compound semiconductors, to next generation semiconductors (plastic electronics and 2D materials). • The MSc is closely linked with the CSconnected, the Compound Semiconductor Cluster, and supported by our industry partners including SPTS Technologies, IQE, The Compound Semiconductor Centre (CSC), Microchip, Newport Wafer Fab, Zimmer and Peacock.

• We work closely with the Faculty of Science and Engineering and Swansea University Medical School, allowing students and staff to cultivate an environment of research excellence. • For our research programmes, we invite applications from well-qualified candidates whose research interest focuses around the themes of Energy Chemistry; Health, Food and Drug Chemistry; Chemistry of Materials; Semiconductor Chemistry and Surface Chemistry; and Spectroscopy.
