Comments about Msc Advanced Materials - At the institution - Nottingham - Nottinghamshire

  • Objectives
    Industrial sectors such as aerospace, automotive and energy require advanced materials which may have to operate in challenging environments whilst delivering high levels of performance. The course develops an understanding of the properties for a wide range of engineering materials from polymer composites to light-metal alloys, the effect of processing and surface engineering on the properties of a material, and analytical techniques used for materials characterisation. It provides the knowledge and skills required for a career in materials research and product development of high performance materials.
  • Entry requirements
    This MSc course is designed for science and engineering graduates who wish to develop expertise in modern high performance materials.
  • Academic Title
    Msc Advanced Materials
  • Course description
    Key facts

    -The programme is currently in the UK Home Office Science and Engineering Scheme (SEGS), which allows non-EEA graduates to remain in the UK for a further 12-months after they have completed the course.
    -The School of Mechanical, Materials and Manufacturing Engineering was awarded a Grade 5 in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise.
    -We were also given the highest possible rating at the last UK Teaching Quality Assessment.

    Course Content
    This course aims to develop your ability to think and function in an integrated manner across the areas of materials science and engineering.

    Through a mixture of core and optional modules, you will develop the following:

    -Knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of materials and the necessary background science;
    -Knowledge and understanding of materials processing technology relevant to industry; 

     Understanding of the relationships between the mechanical properties of materials, their microstructure and their processing history;

    -The ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports, verbally and by means of presentations to groups;
    -Ability to exercise original thought;
    -Ability to plan and undertake an individual project;
    -Ability to understand and apply the theory, method and practice of materials engineering and design in a wide range of industries;
    -Interpersonal, communication and professional skills.

    The MSc in Advanced Materials offers a good degree of flexibility by combining core compulsory modules with a range of elective modules – this means that you can create a programme of study that reflects your interests. The core modules offered on this course are:

    -High Performance Ceramics and Glasses
    -Advanced Materials
    -Materials Under Stress
    -Advanced Materials Characterisation
    -Materials in Service

    The elective modules current include:

    -Information Technology for Engineering
    -Conservation and Recycling of Materials
    -Surface Engineering and Characterisation
    -Polymer Engineering
    -Fibre Reinforced Composites Engineering
    -Technology and Knowledge Management
    -Stress Analysis Techniques
    -Aerospace Materials or Automotive Materials
    -Electron-Optical and X-Ray Techniques
    -Advanced Joining Technology

    Please note that all module details are subject to change.

    In addition, you will undertake a materials technology research project / dissertation on a subject of your choice. This gives you the chance to complete a major piece of independent research under the guidance of a suitably experienced supervisor.

    Course Structure
    The MSc in Advanced Materials can be taken on a full-time basis over 1 year (September to September) or part-time over 2 years.

    You will take a combination of core and optional modules (worth 120 credits), along with a major individual research-based project (worth 60 credits) – these are often linked with an industrial company.

    Modules on this course look at examples, case studies and projects to create a programme of study that is relevant to industry.
