This course provides a deep understanding of the processing, nature and properties of a broad range of engineering materials. Only by understanding these can materials be truly designed for purpose. The course seeks to integrate materials behaviour and materials processing relevant to a wide range of industrial sectors, providing students with specific skills suitable for a wide range of careers in UK and international organisations involved in materials and product development. It also provides a firm foundation for a research path in Materials Engineering. You will study the core principals of advanced materials over two semesters, alongside modules in materials categorisation and the mechanisms of failure of materials. This will provide you with a depth of knowledge and skills allowing you to make informed choices concerning applications, selection and design of advanced materials. Our teaching aims to produce graduates able to think and function in an integrated manner across all areas of materials engineering. We offer a good degree of flexibility by combining compulsory modules with a range of electives – this means you can create a programme of study that reflects your individual interests, such as sustainability or knowledge management.
