MRes: Steel Training Research and Innovation Project (STRIP)

Want to do a master’s in the exciting area of renewable energy generation and storage? We also have projects on metallurgy for automotive components and hi-tech manufacturing of new iron based alloys.

The Steel Training Research and Innovation Partnership – STRIP is a Swansea University, College of Engineering led project to train high calibre people in metallurgy, corrosion, coatings, manufacturing and mechanical properties.

About the project:

The MRes is a master’s qualification involving taught courses and a 10 month research project with a partnering company that will aim to solve a very real and relevant problem.

A number of projects will support SPECIFIC (, which aims to turn buildings into power stations using functional coatings. You will develop coatings that collect solar energy, store energy and release it in a controlled way. This represents a great opportunity for people looking to gain a post graduate qualification, industrial contact and receive a tax free bursary, as well as contribute to the aim of reducing CO2 emissions in the UK.

Candidate eligibility:

A good degree in a science or engineering subject

A keen interest in science and engineering

Studentship value:

This MRes comes with a tax free bursary of £12500 and is exempt from tuition fees.
