Research interests can be very diverse and hence, you are encouraged to talk to your potential supervisors about possible research topics and explore areas of interest. Although not essential, most students embarking on a research degree already have a preference for a particular area of research arising from personal interests. Supervision in the areas of Physics and Mathematics for Master of Science (Research) and PhD is also available through the School of Engineering.
