* The fees you are charged at Deakin depend on whether you have a Commonwealth supported place or a full fee paying place, the course you study and the year you commenced in that course.
The Master of Philosophy (Electromaterials) provides unique research training to equip you for a range of exciting future careers. It provides both a pathway to future PhD studies and also training for future jobs in the energy, manufacturing and health arenas.
This is your chance to discover new materials and develop smart devices to help solve some of today’s most challenging global problems.
As a student in the world-first Master of Philosophy (Electromaterials) course, your study will be hands-on – discovering new materials, using cutting-edge characterisation techniques and assembling new materials into electrochemical devices for applications in clean energy, health or advanced manufacturing. You’ll be working with leading, world-renowned researchers in electromaterials through the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science.
Deakin University and the University of Wollongong have teamed up to offer this unique opportunity. You’ll choose from a variety of unique research projects – anything from medical bionics to sustainable energy generation, robotic hands to solar water splitting and the next generation of battery designs. In addition, core units will be streamed live between the two campuses, so you get the best of both worlds.
