We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Ceramics allow postgraduates to critically analyse and technically develop the mineral compounds which compose clay-based products.
Related postgraduate specialisms are Conservation of Ceramics and Ceramics Design. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Design Technology or Materials Science.
Courses in this field are highly practical, involving examination of the properties of different ceramics including pottery, glass, brick, porcelain and cement.
Practices range from traditional techniques such as glazing and firing, to lab experiments and 3d modelling.
Careers in this field are varied, covering several sectors. For example, you might explore roles in heritage management, such as the conservation of ceramics in listed buildings and heritage sites.
Alternatively, you might explore routes in Ceramics Design, from decorative materials such as ornaments, through to functional items like homeware. You might also branch into industrial or architectural ceramics, designing and developing products such as windows, bricks, and foundations.

The University of Sunderland has the largest glass and ceramics department in Europe. This programme is for individuals who wish to develop both their practice and critical understanding with regards to glass and ceramics.
Find out more about this programme at the next. RCA Open Day. on Saturday 23 March. The spirit of Ceramics & Glass at the RCA springs from the heart of those media, and a belief in the transformative power of material thinking, research and making to enrich our world in imaginative and meaningful ways.
It is estimated 70 per cent of innovations are due to an advance in materials. This course provides a solid grounding in all types of materials, and aims to prepare you for a career in industry or research by teaching the concepts and theories that make materials science and engineering possible.
Engineering at Swansea University has key research strengths in materials for aerospace applications and steel technology. As a student on the Master's course in Materials Engineering, you will be provided with the depth of knowledge and breadth of abilities to meet the demands of the international materials industry.
Our Materials Science and Technology MSc is designed to meet the requirements of industry, where qualified materials scientists and engineers are highly sought after.
This international Erasmus Mundus Master program covers the synthesis, characterization and processing of all classes of materials.
The programme is co-organised by Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB) and Universite Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), offering students the possibility to obtain a double master's degree at the end of the programme.
The structure of the program consists of a core of 60 credits, four options of 12 credits, three fixed elective packages of 12 credits, engineering and general interest electives of 12 credits and the Master's thesis of 24 credits.
During the course you will. Develop your skills and knowledge in materials selection and design. Gain in-depth understanding of key factors shaping the design and selection of materials used in advanced engineering applications, their processing, properties and stability.
The College is based at Swansea University’s brand new beachfront Bay Campus, which has four buildings dedicated to engineering, holding 30,000m2 of laboratory and office space and over £10 million of new research and teaching equipment
