Brief description

Each of the constituent departments of IMPaCS will encourage, provide, and monitor discipline-specific training to research students in the Institute. Due to the diverse nature of the research being undertaken within the institute, for example experimental, numerical and theoretical, a range of activities are planned and students should choose those most relevant to their work.

Aims

This module aims to give PhD students a broad knowledge of a range of subject specific skills that they can apply in a variety of research interests. In particular, it will develop the ability of students to undertake independent research projects.
