Course content

This is a distance learning version of our long established MMet Advanced Metallurgy course. You’ll learn the fundamentals of thermodynamics, structure and mechanical behaviour, and study more advanced topics like engineering alloys, processing, physical metallurgy, modelling and performance in service.

To complete this distance learning course, you will need to be directly working in, or have the support of, a metals/materials related industry. A significant part of the course involves completing a research project. This project will need to be done in the workplace under the day-to-day supervision of a manager. A company working in a relevant sector will need to sponsor your project. This could be your current employer or a company for which you will perform a research project.
