Specialist Research Skills for Scientists

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