HetSys Research Themes

HetSys is built around a closely knit, highly collaborative team of academics from five science departments at Warwick with a strong track record in leading large projects in the heterogeneous materials research field.

With its project partners HetSys develops talented, energetic PhD students to push boundaries in this exciting field. The students have the potential to inspire new ideas, approaches and innovation and become future leaders in developing new technologies.

HetSys builds on Warwick's cross-departmental scientific computing research community and the Warwick Centre for Predictive Modelling.

Information about the areas of research within the remit of the HetSys CDT can be found below, along with details about our current research projects. Our Project Opportunities page shows available projects for our next entry point in Autumn 2024. For further guidance on how to apply, student funding and the HetSys training programme, please visit the Study with Us page.

Quantum: Electrons, atoms and molecules for catalysis, medicines and devices

Atomistic: Materials structure, phases and defects for properties and applications

Continuum: New methods for fluids, plasma, porous media and composites for technological solutions
