  • Objectives
    Our Materials Science and Engineering courses are all about giving you the ability to tackle situations that materials scientists and engineers encounter on an everyday basis. You will learn how to tailor the properties of materials to meet design requirements, using an understanding of their structure, composition and processing. Our Materials with Industrial Management course aims to meet the increasing demand for graduates who are highly-trained and experienced in both materials and management issues. We provide you with a solid basis in the underlying science and we use a hands-on approach and exposure to real situations to give you a good understanding of practical applications. The course incorporates business modules at each year of study, as well as case studies, design projects, group industrial projects, laboratory work, manufacturing plant visits, tutorials and the five-month MEng paid placement in industry. These are all designed to aid your development as a scientist and engineer and to give you the management skills needed in the organisation of a production or processing plant or the running of research and development projects. A key feature of our degrees is their flexibility. We offer courses leading to either BEng or MEng qualifications, involving three or four years of study respectively. You do not need to decide between a BEng or MEng until the end of Year Two, when you will have enough knowledge and experience to make an informed decision. Our high level of research funding provides excellent resources that are used by undergraduate students as well as postgraduate students and staff. Financial assistance: The Department offers first-year Entrance Bursaries to students on this course with high entry qualifications.
