Welcome to the Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science offers a wide range of postgraduate research opportunities. With the largest number of research students in the university, we investigate the challenges and possibilities of the natural and technological world - from drug discovery and public health to environmental concerns, tackling cybercrime and understanding space.
We have leading-edge research and close links with business and public sector organisations, plus multimillion-pound funding from research councils, the National Health Services, charities and industry. This ensures our research is relevant and of national and international importance. Strathclyde's research programmes showcase our focus on relevance and usefulness through having an impact on industry, science and society.PhD study at Strathclyde
Computer & Information Sciences
My PhD was a natural continuation of research which was guided by the strong relationship I had with my supervisors from my MPhil at University of Strathclyde. Their expertise in the field gave me confidence that our PhD project could reach the community, knowing that the work we produced would be of a very high standard.
Strathclyde has a motivated and friendly chemistry department. Allowing me to speak to learn multiple perspectives in approaching a problem, from a variety of students and academics. Additionally, regular lectures from outside speakers have given me an opportunity to see several academics at various stages in their career talk about their work.
The research community starts with your colleagues and supervisor and grows to include other groups in the department. Overall, we are doing cutting-edge research at Strathclyde. We collaborate with some of the best research groups in the fields of quantum optics, and we have several events over the year with people from all over the world.
At the University of Strathclyde we believe that our ideas can change the world.
