This programme cultivates a theoretical and practical understanding of the fundamental aspects of material engineering within its graduates by exploring various aspects of the discipline; such as materials science, industrial metallurgy, composites and advanced materials. Our students benefit from the strategic partnership we hold with the National Manufacturing Institute of Scotland and the Advanced Forming Research Centre. This relationship offers students prolonged exposure to leading research across materials engineering through sponsored research projects, site visits, guest lectures and other employability led initiatives. During their programme, students will study a number of compulsory and technical modules, as well as develop professional skills across topics such as design management, sustainability and financial engineering. Students undertake an individual research project, the theme of which can be related to the National Manufacturing Institute of Scotland and the Advanced Forming Research Centre or aligned to engineering research at the University.
Compulsory modules: Fundamentals of Materials Science, Degredation of Metals and Alloys, Engineering Composites, Industrial Metallurgy, Advanced Materials Processing and Manufacturing.
Normally a first or second-class Honours degree, or overseas equivalent, in engineering or physical sciences, or equivalent professional qualification.
