Course content

The MSc Advanced Materials is for you if you are a scientist looking to further develop your skills and knowledge in the field of advanced materials. It will support your current career development if you are already working in this area or it will enhance your prospects if you are preparing to begin a career in the sector.

You will be working with modern and advanced materials and have the opportunity to extend your understanding of the methodologies and applications used in high technology and science-based industries. You will use your already extensive understanding of the properties and behaviour of materials in order to envisage and devise novel applications in response to technological problems and shortcomings.

This is a unique and flexible course in which you may choose to specialise in a particular area of advanced materials. Alternatively, you may study a combination of modules from any of the five pathways, which will result in a non-specific award of MSc in Advanced Materials.

The department will also consider the development of a tailor-made module if you are in a particular group of students with an interest in a specific area, for example one that that is relevant to the organisation in which you are working.

The MSc Advanced Materials consists of five pathways, each of which leads to a specific qualification.
MSc in Advanced Materials (Medical & Healthcare)
MSc in Advanced Materials (Technical Textiles)
MSc in Advanced Materials (Fire Retardancy)
MSc in Advanced Materials (Intelligent Materials)
MSc in Advanced Materials (Smart Microsystems)
