High quality teaching & research
Students are offered high quality teaching, informed by innovative research, and strong links with industry, the NHS and international partners.
There's opportunities for cross-disciplinary research and study, both within the Faculty, or across other faculties and institutions at Strathclyde.
The University's recently launched Technology & Innovation Centre represents a major step forward in industry-university partnerships. Science staff are building on existing partnerships to develop photonics and sensors, nanoscience and health technologies as key components of the Centre. We also engage with the public sector and charitable bodies.
An international community
Many staff work in partnership with international researchers, or undertake research overseas, as well as contributing to or leading international conferences. As a result, there's often opportunities for postgraduate students to undertake part of their studies abroad.
Postgraduate study opportunities are available in these departments and centres:
- Computer & Information Sciences
- Mathematics & Statistics
- Physics including the Institute of Photonics, a commerically-orientated research centre which focuses on applied photonics
- Pure & Applied Chemistry including the Centre for Forensic Science
- Strathclyde Institute of Pharmacy & Biomedical Sciences
Fully funded MSc courses
We've recently introduced two new MSc degrees:
The courses are aligned to industry needs in subjects that are in high demand from key professional sectors. Both courses are based in Doctoral Training Centres in the Strathclyde Institute for Pharmacy and Biomedical Sciences. The Scottish Funding Council have allocated a number of funded places on both courses for Scottish/EU students which cover the full tuition fees.
