From clean energy to clean water, advanced materials provide the building blocks of innovation in a vast range of sectors and applications. As a materials chemist, you may design and develop intelligent products for areas such as health, energy, mobility, and communication, as well as environment and climate management. Our MSc Advanced Materials offers the chance to get to grips with materials chemistry including the design, analysis, and characterisation of materials. With a multi-disciplinary approach, we offer a fascinating combination of chemistry and project management to develop your professional skills and prepare you to join the next generation of materials scientists. The course is suited to talented chemists and scientists with a passion for analysing and creating innovative materials. With a core interest in materials chemistry, on this course, you’ll develop an in-depth understanding of the relationship between the structure and performance of different materials, the fundamental principles driving the development of innovative products, and strategies for the design and development of novel materials. Features and Benefits - Cutting-edge equipment - Learn the latest analytical and materials characterisation techniques such as X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-rays photoelectron spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy, and Raman spectroscopy, in our state-of-the-art facilities in the Department of Natural Sciences. - Research Expertise - We’re home to PrintCity, our 3D additive and digital manufacturing centre, and Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre, which is leading the way in harnessing renewable energy. - Learn alongside world-leading researchers - We are 6th in UK for the impact of our research in Engineering and 100% of research impact is world-leading or internationally excellent (REF 2021). - Professional impact - With a mix of practical skills, research-led understanding and industry-standard project management techniques, this course offers the professional tools you’ll need for your career in the field. - Optional placement year - Boost your career prospects and put theory into practice with an industry placement year. - Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre - Our £4.1m Manchester Fuel Cell Innovation Centre allows us to support over 100 small-to-medium sized enterprises (SMEs) and industrial partners to advance their hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. - A UK leader in hydrogen technology - We’re creating a new national facility that will be the epicentre of hydrogen technology in the UK. The facility will allow Greater Manchester’s organisations to explore and establish different materials, methods and standards required for the next generation of green hydrogen and fuel cells at the scale required to allow the city to reach Net Zero by 2038. - Investing in your future - We’re transforming our science and engineering campus. Opening in September 2023, our £115 million redevelopment provides a professional study environment with world-class facilities, including a 200 capacity super lab, so you’re well prepared to experience life within a modern industry setting when you graduate.
