  • Objectives
    The MSc gives training in state-ofthe- art vacuum engineering techniques and technology present within the industry. Students will work closely with industry throughout the programme, allowing them to become familiar with the latest advances and developments.
  • Entry requirements
    This Master’s training package is aimed at newly-qualified science and engineering graduates and process, design and sales engineers or technicians who have gained a number of years’ experience in a relevant industry.
  • Academic title
    MSc/PgDip Vacuum Engineering and Applications
  • Course description
    Each module will take the form of a stand-alone programme, which means that industrialists can select a module or a number of modules as a short programme for their personnel or customers. Individual modules can be taken by prior arrangement. The timescale of these will be tailored to meet industrial needs.

    Entry onto individual modules will depend on the recommendation of the company involved. Industrial seminars and industrial visits are a regular feature.

    Students will also be expected to give seminars on subjects that will be individually selected to meet students’ direct needs and interests. Training involves the MKS VTS-1A vacuum training system and equipment donated by the major vacuum/gas flow component and system manufacturers.

    Students are introduced to thin film deposition, ion implantation, chemical vapour deposition and analytical techniques such as scanning/transmission electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction and mass spectrometry.
