Imperial College London
Materials are all around us, and understanding how physics, chemistry and engineering come together to create our environment is what materials scientists do best. We explore properties, observe materials at the smallest scale and carefully manipulate the structure to mould any molecule 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 materials innovation can 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.
Applicants to this summer school are encouraged to engage with some of the super-curricular activities mentioned on our study pages. https://www.imperial.ac.uk/materials/study/undergraduate/apply-to-study-materials-science/ - under "Making a strong application" - "super curricular".
