Course content

This programme brings together the latest developments in materials science and their application into new technology, providing you with specialist knowledge and skills which will enhance your engineering career.

It focuses on the theory and computational simulation of material structures for application into automotive, aerospace, technology and energy sectors. You will gain a strong understanding of the properties and behaviours of different substances, from raw materials to finished products, identifying their strengths and limitations, enabling you to find solutions to complex contemporary problems.

Our particular research strengths are drawn into the masters programme, in areas including functional materials (those with extra functionality such as electro-magnetic screening, self-sensing and active materials, and materials with negative thermal expansion and Poisson’s ratios), polymers, composites and bio-materials.

There is a choice of pathways available so you can focus on your technical engineering skills through this programme, or combine these with management skills through the MSc Materials Engineering with Management programme
