Course summary

Develop specialised knowledge in this course which is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. Offered only at selected universities in Scotland at Masters Level, this course is information rich, but also provides a significant degree of hands-on practical work that utilises a wide range of manufacturing, testing and characterisation equipment. The limited number of graduates in this area, combined with the knowledge, expertise and practical skills developed in this specialised field, gives you a major advantage over other engineering graduates as you seek employment within the materials-related industries. We have been successfully teaching a Masters programme in materials engineering for more than 20 years, leading the way in the study of this field. Staff are very experienced and undertake both academic research and commercial projects, both of which support students’ learning experience. Please visit our website for course details.
