Many research projects cross the disciplinary boundaries of medicine, engineering and the physical sciences. Depending on the source of funding, your project may involve collaboration with an industry partner or you may work in a team with a number of students to develop an idea to the point where, following your degree, you can create a spin-off company to commercialise the results of your research.
There are opportunities to develop your business awareness and skills, with training in topics such as intellectual property protection.
nanoLAB also hosts regular research seminars, conferences and workshops.
In addition, our Medical Sciences Graduate School and Science, Agriculture and Engineering Graduate School also have a thriving postgraduate research culture, with additional support for international students. We have an excellent record for timely PhD submission, provide training in professional/key skills and research techniques, and support personal development.
