Course summary

Materials Science and Engineering looks at how the properties of matter can be controlled. It includes elements of physics and chemistry and links strongly to most other areas of engineering. Materials Engineers are at the cutting edge of almost all technological developments. Most innovations, from cars to sports equipment, are completely dependent on the choice of material and its performance.This degree will train you for a rewarding career in a range of engineering sectors including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, sports, and energy generation. You will study specialist subjects on the structure, mechanical performance and functional properties of advanced alloys, polymers, composites and ceramics. You will have the opportunity to gain industrial insight through site visits to Tata Steel, Timet, Ensinger and Airbus. The degree will also provide a foundation for you to aim for the prized Chartered Engineer status.**Why Swansea?**- **Materials Science and Engineering is ranked 6th in the UK** (The Guardian University League Table 2020)- We are ranked **2nd in the UK for Graduate Prospects** (The Guardian University League Table 2020)- We are **2nd in the UK for Graduate Level Employment** (DLHE 16/17 Graduates)- **Average salary is £25,000** for a Materials Science and Engineering graduate**Materials Science and Engineering Facilities include:** - Comprehensive computer systems for specialist and general purposes- World-leading equipment for characterisation of the mechanical properties of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials- Extensive range of laboratories housing scanning electron microscopes with full microanalysis and electron backscatter diffraction capabilities**Accreditation**The Materials Science and Engineering course at Swansea University is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of partially meeting the educational requirement for Further Learning for Engineering Council registration as a Chartered Engineer.Accreditation is a mark of assurance that the degree meets the standards set by the Engineering Council in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Study on an accredited degree will provide you with some of the underpinning knowledge, understanding and skills needed as a Chartered Engineer. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited degree is likely to be recognised by many countries that are signatories to international accords.**Did you know all of our courses are available with a Year in Industry or Year Abroad?** These placement years increase our students confidence and communication skills as well as help them to gain valuable experiences that will ultimately enhance their employability.
