  • Course description
    Course description
    Materials Science is a synthesis of physics, chemistry, and engineering. It is the building block on which modern industry has and will continue to advance.

    The first two years of this programme are designed to provide a thorough grounding in the scientific principles governing the physical, chemical, and mechanical properties of all solid materials.

    In particular we develop the understanding of how the structure of a material, from the nano- to the macro-scale, governs its behaviour and we introduce the techniques and methodologies to characterise that structure. The control of that structure through processing is also a key topic.

    In addition, the role of the engineer in designing with and selection of materials is outlined.

    In year three we offer advanced topics along with the opportunity to specialise in the study of a particular class of material (metal, ceramic, or polymer) through choice of options. An introduction to research methodology and practice is also given to aid the final year project. Further opportunities to study the topic at greater depth are offered in 4th year options.

    The extensive (half year) final year project enables you to tackle a topic at the forefront of Materials Science in depth. It will develop further practical and analytical skills. Formal teaching in communication and transferable skills, including basic management and organisational behaviour, computing and presentation techniques, is given to complement the academic training.

    The MEng programme enhances the research and managerial aspects of the BSc programme and allows you to develop independence and critical and analytical powers.

    Career opportunities
    Careers include research and development roles, management positions and technical sales within large materials manufacturing or end-users. The range of careers include things as diverse as teaching, engineering, consultancy and technical development roles.
