Advanced Engineering Materials MSc

Course Description

The masters programme in Advanced Engineering Materials provides you with an in-depth understanding of the key factors that govern the design and selection of materials for use in advanced engineering applications, as well as their processing, properties and stability.

Industry impact
The course has direct relevance to the automotive and aerospace industries and encompasses materials ranging from composites and foams, for light weight structures, to advanced metallic alloys and engineering ceramics. The programme is delivered by academics, who are active researchers in the field, and complemented by strong industrial input.

This is a progressive and forward-thinking subject which will expose you to the next generation of high performance engineering materials. As a graduate of this programme, you will be equipped to begin a career as a material scientist in industry, or to join a PhD programme to further develop your research skills.

Advanced knowledge
By the end of the programme you will be familiar with the structure and design of materials and have an increased depth of knowledge of materials engineering, and the physical mechanisms that govern the microstructural development and performance of materials. In parallel, you will study more novel materials, such as metallic foams and metal matrix composites, and you will learn the basics of advanced characterisation techniques and design methods, with application to advanced structural materials.

The programme
The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a five-month dissertation project (MSc) or six-week project report (Diploma). The taught course units are delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorial classes and practical laboratory work.

The course units, draw together the disciplines of metallic, ceramic, polymeric, and composite materials science and engineering.

You will be assessed by a combination of examinations and course work and you will complete an industrial case study which supports development of your transferable skills.

The MSc dissertation projects are supervised by leading materials scientists in metals, ceramics and biomaterials research field. The students have access to a wide range of world-class facilities. Most of the projects have links with multinational companies, including Rolls-Royce, British Airways, and BNFL.
