|Advanced Certificate in Powder Diffraction
on the Web
The Internet is a new and innovative medium for teaching. We hope it will provide the means of finding out more about the technique of powder diffraction for students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to do so. However, because of the nature of this method of teaching there are certain prerequisites.
The minimum equipment/know-how required to take the course will be:
We anticipate that most students will be using PCs running MS Windows 95/98/NT/2K. However, most of the course material can be browsed (and interacted with) using PCs running Linux or other UNIX computers or even Macs. However, the Department cannot guarantee an equal level of technical support for students not using PCs running MS Windows 95/98/NT/2K. For further information on hardware and browsers, click here.
This list of requirements should act as a guide only as there are bound to be variations and combinations which are not mentioned above. If after reading the above you are still unsure about the level of your technical know-how or the equipment you will need then please contact Martin Vickers.
If you should decide to pursue your application with the Department you will be asked to complete, along with the college application form, a technical information form. It is only at this point, once we have all your details available to us, that your technical equipment/know-how will be assessed formally and we will be able to confirm your suitability to undertake the course.
