    Personal profile


    Prof. Andrew Cobley is a Professor of Electrochemical Deposition at Coventry University and leads the Functional Materials Research Group. Prof. Cobley obtained his first degree from Portsmouth Polytechnic in 1986 and then worked for over 20 years in commercial research and development at ITRI, BAe Systems, Shipley Ltd and Rohm and Haas. During this time he developed and patented a number of metallization and pre-treatment processes and installed PCB and MID manufacturing systems at some of the largest electronics companies in Europe. In 2002 he obtained his PhD in Electrochemistry from Loughborough University before joining Coventry University in 2006. Prof. Cobley has led several EU, Innovate UK, British Council and EPSRC funded proposals. Most recently, he is Principal Investigator and overall lead for the €6 million, H2020, MATUROLIFE project which involves 20 partners from 9 EU countries.

    Prof. Cobley has published numerous papers and has presented at over 50 international conferences. He is Chairman and Fellow of the Institute of Circuit Technology, a Chartered Chemist and Member of the Royal Society of Chemistry.

    Vision Statement


    My vision as lead of the Functional Materials Research Group has been to create an enthusiastic and dynamic team of talented scientists carrying out World leading research, becoming recognised ‘thought leaders’ in applied electrochemistry and materials science, who produce rigorous research of the highest standard. The group’s research objective is to create novel, innovative and enabling technologies to add functionality and value to a material, thereby addressing current and future industry needs. Agile and responsive, we achieve this aim by developing disruptive technologies that are sustainable and have low environmental impact whilst being scalable and industrially relevant.
