As would be expected of a top-rated UK research school with around 120
postgraduate students from across the world, facilities for postgraduate study
are of the highest standard.

The School is purpose-built, self-contained, and offers a pleasant and friendly environment for study, with central University facilities just a few minutes walk

The School has an enviable range of multimillion pound facilities. The last few years have seen significant investment in new infrastructure and equipment totalling £8.5 million, including a wireless computer network, major laboratory refurbishment and a wide range of new equipment.

Additionally, a further £12.5 million is being spent on a new state-of-the-art Energy Building designed to house all of the major research work in this area. The School has outstanding experimental research facilities, including advanced
electron-optics for nano-scale materials characterisation, preparation facilities for making and characterising particulate systems for a wide range of technological materials, facilities for advanced environmental monitoring and pollution control, and advanced energy systems, including fuel cells and combustion systems.

The School offers extensive and unique research facilities for the investigation of fire and explosion dynamic development and toxic emmissions.

There are excellent computing facilities available within the School, including a 64 node Beowulf Parallel computing cluster and high performance graphic workstations for molecular modelling studies. The University is also a member of the White Rose Consortium, providing access to the White Rose Grid and its immense computing power.
