Imperial College London
Materials are all around us, and understanding how physics, chemistry and engineering come together to create our world is what materials scientists do best. We explore properties, observe materials at the smallest scale and carefully manipulate the structure to mould any object into the desired perfect material. In this summer school you will be exploring this incredible world, observing how smart materials can independently change their shape or self-heal and sense; understanding how innovative materials will help us contain nuclear radiation; gaining deeper insights on how materials can survive high temperature combustion in plane engines and you will discover how materials can also be placed within your body and actively help it heal. During your time with us, you will have the chance to discuss and design your “ultimate” material, supported by our academics and explore materials and their properties in detail in our undergraduate laboratories.
