Study with Us

The Centre for Complex Fluids Processing is a constituent member of the Multidisciplinary Nanotechnogy Centre at Swansea University. Founded in 2002, the MNC is based on strong and rapidly growing nanotechnology activities in engineering and science, and supported by significant investment from the Higher Education Funding Council for Wales, The Royal Society/Wolfson Foundation and Swansea University in excess of £4 Million. The Centre has achieved significant recognition from the international community, the UK Research Councils, the European Union, the regional development agency and industry. As a measure of the success of the Centre, it is home to a prestigious EPSRC Portfolio Partnership in Complex Fluids and Complex Flows. This is a major award worth £3Million and is a reflection of the high quality research that is conducted. Furthermore, the Centre spearheads the Nanotechnology activity across the whole of Wales. Within Swansea, the Centre involves more than 25 academics from a range of disciplines (engineering, physics, chemistry, biology and medicine) and a central suite of laboratories housing unrivaled state-of-the-art facilities. Of particular interest are directions based on semiconductors, oxides, liquids, polymers, organic and biological materials. Emerging fields such as bio-electronics, nano-medicine, nano-fabrication, nanorheology, fundamental modelling at the nanoscopic level and bio-nanotechnology have been identified as key areas to develop.

Swansea's leading-edge in nanotechnology is taking todays' challenges and turning them into tomorrow's reality.
