This programme will provide a deep understanding of the processing, nature and properties of a broad range of engineering materials. Only by studying these can materials be truly designed for purpose. The course integrates materials behavior and materials processing relevant to a wide range of industrial sectors.

The programme produces graduates who are able to think and function in an integrated manner across the areas of materials
science and engineering.

Students will develop:
knowledge and understanding of the basic principles of materials and the necessary background science
understanding of the relationships between the mechanical properties of materials, their microstructure and their processing history
knowledge of recent advances in materials development
the ability to communicate ideas effectively in written reports, verbally and by means of presentations to groups
the ability to exercise original thought
the ability to plan and undertake an individual project
the ability to understand and apply the theory, method and
practice of materials engineering and design in a wide range of industries
interpersonal, communication and professional skills

Previous research projects have included:
Investigating novel hydrogen storage materials
The development of open cell Ni foams for areoengine parts
