We’ve been responding to the needs of industry and producing skilled graduates for over 40 years. This programme will provide you with the expertise in advanced materials and engineering needed to design and innovative sustainable materials for today’s world. Materials is a discipline which underpins global industry, with this area of engineering opening worldwide opportunities to a well-paid and rewarding career. From materials developed to work in harmony with the human body to increase the effectiveness of implants and replacement joints, to advances in surface engineering allowing for more fuel-efficient vehicle design. The list is endless and means that materials is an incredibly important and rewarding sector of engineering. Our programmes have a long track record of delivering high-quality, research-led education, which will take you to the cutting edge of materials science. The development of new and improved materials is at the very heart of a range of technologies and this programme will give you the opportunity to explore and deepen your understanding of the scientific, engineering and design aspects of materials, their structure, properties, processing, in-service behaviour and environmental impact, at a more advanced level. Bridging the gap between the physical sciences, you will gain an understanding into the atomic and molecular structures of materials to help understand their behaviour. You will also explore their applications to bring about improved performance or new products. This master’s encompasses all aspects of materials: their selection, manufacture, testing, use and applications, as well as environmental impact both during production and at the end of life. You’ll be equipped with a core knowledge of materials science and engineering that can be applied to a range of materials-based careers, giving you flexibility within the job market.
An 2:2 honours degree (or equivalent international qualification) in a science or engineering subject.
