About the Project
The aim of this project is to develop and build an electroless plating equipment to enable deposit different
metallic materials on fabrics to achieve maximum combination of properties.
This project is supervised by Professor Khalid Lafdi.
Please note eligibility requirement:
• Academic excellence of the proposed student i.e. 2:1 (or equivalent GPA from non-UK universities [preference for 1st class honours]); or a Masters (preference for Merit or above); or APEL evidence of substantial practitioner achievement.
• Appropriate IELTS score, if required.
