JoVE (Journal of Visualized Experiments) encompasses a range of experimental and instrumental techniques utilized in physics research and applied physics. Investigations in this area try to address and answer a broad range of scientific questions, such as device mechanisms and efficiencies, using physical tools. This approach often requires a combination of specialties, and research in this area tends to be interdisciplinary with contributions from mechanical, electrical, and chemical engineers.
We have arranged trial access to Jove Engineering to consider for subscription.

Research Support Workshops
The Postgraduate Affairs Office runs more than 50 research methodology and writing workshops. The programme is adjusted according to an analysis of students’ evaluations, suggestions and attendance figures to meet student requests.
Workshops take place between March through to October every year. Some workshops are repeated but not all. Programme changes happen - please check workshop dates and times before you set out. Please book for your workshops and please cancel if you cannot make it.
