Overview

The sheer scope of applications for ceramics engineering is mind-blowing. This discipline has the potential to revolutionise everything from computing to space travel. Our MSc introduces you to the theories and concepts that make it all possible.

This course takes you through the underpinning concepts and how they are applied to electroceramics, refractories, glasses, cements and a wide range of new ceramic materials.

We cover fabrication, processing, properties and application of ceramics.

Through group work, presentations and report writing, you’ll develop skills that provide a solid foundation for your professional development.

We’ll give you training in professional research methods and you’ll carry out a project of your own, supervised by an academic. This project gives you the chance to apply what you’ve learnt. It also provides the basis for your dissertation.
