I think that in 'Material Science', both words should be capitalized.  'Collaborative working' doesn't work for me. I would use either 'working collaboratively' or 'collaborative work'. 'Parts' needs to be plural.  Anything with Oxford U. should grab their attention.   I would use the dates of your attendance. 'Last year' gets obsolete quickly.  Good luck. One of my stepsons is a Pharm. D. and he loves it. He teaches and does research.
