PhD and Research Masters

The Centre welcomes applications from prospective Masters and PhD students. To be considered, you will need to be fluent in English and have achieved excellent results in your undergraduate studies. For example, in Australia a First Class Honours degree or a Second Class Honours Division 2 is expected, a GPA of more than 3.5 in the US and Canada, or a CPI of more than 8.6 in India.

Applications will be welcomed from those with a strong interest in computational engineering and materials science. Typically, our research students have undergraduate degrees in such disciplines as materials science/engineering, physics, chemistry or applied mathematics. A broad range of scholarships to support national and international students is available.

To express your interest, please email your CV, together with certified copies of your undergraduate transcripts and a brief statement of your general research interests, to one of the Joint Directors:
