Course summary

The discovery, development and application of advanced materials is at the heart of engineering innovation. Informed by our close research collaborations with industry we are developing the next generation of talented materials scientists and engineers. With a fundamental interest in materials science this course will develop your understanding of materials’ properties, selection, processing and advanced design procedures.

Who is it for?

This course is suitable for graduates with science, applied science, maths, engineering or related degrees keen to pursue careers in the development or exploitation of materials; graduates currently working in industry keen to extend their qualifications; individuals wishing to start/progress their career; or individuals with other qualifications who possess considerable relevant experience.

Why this course?

Cranfield University has an enviable track record in the development and application of advanced materials and their associated processing and manufacturing technologies. This spans from our surface engineering coatings used to increase the operating temperature of gas turbine engines to the development of composite material structures for application in some of the world’s most exotic super cars. Our research and commercial work with industry shape our taught programmes (lectures and projects), where our academic teams are leading in their fields.

Our research centres in enhanced composites and structures, surface engineering and precision and welding engineering are integrated into the delivery of the course through our research and teaching teams, who are passionate in sharing their knowledge and experience in materials.

The group and individual projects are often sponsored by industry giving you highly relevant context to your studies and practical work. With access to many of our unique laboratories and facilities, working alongside our leading research teams Cranfield is the perfect environment to launch your career.
