Overview

This course prepares you for a career in the industry by teaching you the concepts and theories that make materials science and engineering possible. It is taught by experts who are working at the cutting edge of materials science and technology.

The course will give you in-depth technical knowledge and advanced expertise in your chosen materials field. You’ll develop analytical and research skills and gain experience in project planning and management.

You’ll carry out a research project, which may be experimentally, theoretically or industrially based:
- Industrially-based research, suggested by an industrial organisation, may involve close co-operation with that organisation.
- An experimental or theoretical-based research project will be with one of our world-leading research groups, and involve significant amounts of hands-on work practical work.
