MSc Project Proposals

We would like to invite project proposals for the Analytical and the Polymer MSc projects. This year, we have 20 MSc students on Analytical and Polymer MSc courses (CDT students are not included in this call); each of them will undertake a 20-week project (please note this includes the write-up time). During the 20-week period, students will have 1 week to take either as annual leave or to use to work on their project.

Project timeline:

A key objective of these projects is to immerse each student in a research environment which addresses innovative science. We particularly welcome collaborative projects between Industry and the University.

Project supervisors who do not have a permanent university post or who are on probation must identify an academic member of staff who has agreed to mentor them by providing support and advice. The mentor also needs to agree to meet with the student briefly on a weekly basis.

The projects are assessed by:
  • Thesis, c.10,000 words (70%)
  • Presentation: poster (5%) and final presentation (15%)
  • Project Execution (10%)

All supervisors will be additionally required to second mark a thesis of another student (i.e. two theses to mark per each project student).

Students are advised that mini project deadlines are very strict and penalties will be imposed for late submission.

Each student will be allocated a project consumables budget.

Please submit your proposals in pdf format (1 page max) using the form below before midday on Wednesday 31 January 2024.
If you are submitting more than one project proposal, please submit a separate entry and pdf for each project.
