Course content

One of very few such courses offered at masters level in the UK. It's information rich but also provides a significant degree of hands-on practical work that utilises a wide range of manufacturing, testing and characterisation equipment. The limited number of graduates in this area, combined with the knowledge, expertise and practical skills developed in this specialised field, gives you a major advantage over other engineering graduates as you seek employment within the materials-related industries.

We have been successfully teaching a masters programme in materials engineering for more than 20 years, leading the way in the study of this field. Staff are very experienced and undertake both academic research and commercial projects, both of which support students’ learning experience.

Gain exposure to the latest trends in design, materials, manufacturing processes, testing and advanced applications by taking full advantage of our modern technology and computing facilities.

The course has been designed to provide you with knowledge of materials (Polymeric, Metallic, Ceramic and Composite); allowing you to develop your skills further in more application and research based areas of materials engineering such as smart materials and materials in energy based applications.

You'll benefit from our first-class research and knowledge transfer partnerships with local, national and international companies. Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, we have excellent industry links and encourage you to interact with industry too.

Please note this is a part time course but is also available full time.

Fees and funding

Thanks to the Edinburgh and South East Scotland City Region Deal, there are a limited number of fully-funded postgraduate scholarships available at Edinburgh Napier University for qualified Scottish, British and EU students studying full-time, part-time or via distance learning, interested in leading innovation within construction and the built environment. To receive the funding – which will pay for your postgraduate tuition fees – you must agree to engage with an industry partner to identify and develop solutions to construction challenges as part of your Masters studies.

To qualify for the funding, you must identify as someone underrepresented in the construction industry, especially those identifying as women, BAME, with caring responsibilities, and/or with a disability. You must also live in Edinburgh, Fife, East Lothian, West Lothian, Midlothian or the Scottish Borders.
