Course summary

This course provides a broad and deep understanding of the processing, nature and properties of engineering materials.

Overview

This 12-month programme provides a broad and deep understanding of the processing, nature and properties of a range of engineering materials. Only by understanding these can materials be truly designed for purpose. The course integrates materials behaviour and materials processing relevant to a wide range of industrial sectors.

This course will introduce you to the core principles of the design, nature and processing of advanced materials over two semesters, alongside core modules in materials categorisation and the mechanisms of failure of materials. This will provide you with a depth of core knowledge and skills allowing you to make informed choices concerning applications, selection and design of advanced materials.

It offers a good degree of flexibility by combining core compulsory modules with a range of elective modules – this means you can create a programme of study that reflects your interests.

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

  • knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of materials and the necessary background science
  • knowledge and understanding of advanced manufacturing 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 manufacture in a wide range of industries
  • interpersonal, communication and professional skills

Careers

This course produces graduates who are able to think and function in an integrated manner across the areas of materials science and engineering.

It will provide you with specific skills suitable for a wide range of careers in UK and international organisations involved in materials and product development.

Students in the department have gone on to a variety of different careers, including civil engineers, engineering technicians, quality assurance and regulation officers and engineering professionals.

As well as offering you the chance to pursue a fulfilling career within industry and related areas, the MSc programmes offered by the department provide an excellent foundation for further research and a significant number of our students continue their studies to PhD level and beyond.
