PhD Research Programmes

We are always actively seeking good students to undertake research towards a PhD.

For UK and EU nations there are a significant number of fully funded scholarships (fees and annual stipend of at least £13,863 tax free fully paid in 2014/15 and rising annually) for PhD study available every year.

Applications are recommended in the January before the October start date of study.

Potential PhD students should have a look at the JWNC web pages and decide on areas in which they are interested before applying.

Links to lists of present PhD project topics available in:

Electronics and Nanoscale Engineering and in

Biomedical Engineering.

Details of how to apply for a PhD can be found on the

Graduate Studies Application Web Pages

At least 20 fully funded scholarships a year are available for PhD study in the

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Integrative Sensing and Measurement and the

EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Photonics Integration and Advanced Data Storage.

A list of scholarships for overseas students which fund PhD study at Glasgow can be found here.


MSc Programmes

Nanoscience and Nanotechnology MSc teaches students about micro- and nanofabrication in the JWNC.

In addition to our dedicated Nanoscience and Nanotechnology MSc, a number of MSc courses include lectures on "Nanofabrication", "Micro- and Nanotechnology", "Optical Communications" and "Microwave and Millimetre Wave Circuit Design", "Analogue CMOS circuit design", VLSI Design and CAD", all research areas undertaken in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.

Details on how to apply for these MSc courses can be found at "How to Apply".


Undergraduate Study

The James Watt Nanofabrication Centre is predominantly used by postgraduate students. A number of undergraduate projects are undertaken in the Centre by final year BEng and MEng undergraduates taking Electronics and Electrical Engineering degrees each year. The Biomedical Engineering degrees also undertake final year projects in the James Watt Nanofabrication Centre.



Please note that the JWNC does not accept intern students from other Universities who want to use the centre for only a few months of study.
