Engineering offers an enormous range of career opportunities for graduates. If you do not have typical entry qualifications, or are an overseas student without the entry requirements for the first year, the integrated foundation year is designed to provide wider access to accredited honours degrees. Material Science and Engineering is at the heart of many of the more well know engineering, science, and design subjects. Everything is made of something by something and therefore materials are involved. Material science explores how the structure of a material at the micro, or even atomic scale can influence the final properties of product or component and how materials respond to external influences such as mechanical loading or environment. A degree in Materials will provide you with a huge range of career options across multiple sectors. Our graduates are enjoying roles in renewable energy, developing new solar cells and wind turbines, they are protecting our cars from degradation and improving fuel efficiency through the development of lightweight materials. A number of graduates have pursued a career with top aerospace companies where their skills in materials properties and failure analysis are invaluable when pushing jet engines to the limits. Materials Science and Engineering at Swansea is ranked 1st in the UK for Graduate Prospects ( on track) (Complete University Guide 2022) We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University. Subject requirements will apply. Please come along to our next Open Day or get in touch for further information.
Below is a sample of some of the modules that you might expect to study at each level of the BEng Engineering with a Foundation Year degree (it should be noted that these do vary from year to year): Development of Key Skills for Engineers, Fundamentals of Materials, Basic Engineering Analysis 1a, Basic Engineering Analysis 1b, Foundation Chemistry; Engineering Science, Electricity and Magnetism, Mechanics, Thermofluid Mechanics, Basic Engineering Analysis 2a, Basic Engineering Analysis 2b
How to apply
You can no longer submit a new application for courses starting in 2022.
If you already have a 2022 application and are in Clearing, you can add this course as a Clearing choice – contact the university or college first to check they have places.
This is the deadline for applications to be completed and sent for this course. If the university or college still has places available you can apply after this date, but your application is not guaranteed to be considered.
