Course summary

Course description

The Polymer Materials Science and Engineering (PMSE) MSc course is a multidisciplinary program with the aim of giving students a rich understanding of the chemistry, properties, processing, characterisation and application of polymers. A wide range of polymers are considered, including commodity, speciality and those with applications in biomedicine, composites, nanotechnology and electronics. We aim to bring students to the cutting-edge of polymer research, including the latest materials and techniques, with the opportunity to conduct research in world-leading research groups and facilities.

The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a research dissertation. The taught course units are delivered through a combination of lectures and practical laboratory work.

Aims

  • To provide knowledge and understanding of the link between polymer chemical structures, physical properties, processing methods and ultimate applications.
  • To provide knowledge and understanding of the material science principles that govern the behaviour of polymers and other materials.
  • To develop skills in the synthesis and characterisation of polymers.
  • To develop skills in problem solving, project management and independent research.

Career opportunities

Our graduates of this programme have gone on to fill key posts as materials scientists, engineers, managers and consultants in academia, industry and research and development. You may also be able to advance to PhD programmes within the Department.
