More information

Expenses, accommodation, working etc. 


Solid State Chemistry covers the latest advances in advanced inorganic materials. Applications range from energy storage systems, electronic materials and sensors to the more traditional but increasingly hi-tech materials and industries that include glass, cement and refractories.

This course is specifically designed to give you a broad overview of the synthesis, structure and properties of inorganic materials together with in-depth coverage of the main groups of ceramic materials.

You’ll be able to specialise further when it comes to choosing your personal research project.
