Course summary

Course description

This degree programme is fully accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3)

The MMet Advanced Metallurgy is available to study by distance learning, over 2 years. The course content is similar to the face-to-face version of the course, and the end qualification is the same; it’s just the method of delivery that is different.

The distance learning version of the course is only available to individuals either directly working in, or with the support of a metals/materials related industry. This is important as your 60 credit project module will be directly related to this industry, and will require the necessary facilities to carry out the research.

We teach an in-depth and up-to-date understanding of current developments in metallurgy and metallurgical engineering.

You’ll learn the fundamentals of thermodynamics, structure and mechanical behaviour, and study more advanced topics like engineering alloys, processing, physical metallurgy, modelling and performance in service.

Many of our graduates go on to senior positions within their current employers or in the wider metallurgical community. The course also provides the ideal background for pursiuing a PhD degree in engineering materials.
