Course content

Due to the high volume of applications, this course is now over-subscribed. Applications for this course can still be made, and successful applicants will be added to a waiting list. Places will be allocated from the waiting list on a first-come, first-served basis should places become available.

Please note, having a space on the waiting list is not a guarantee of an offer.


The programme aims to convey detailed knowledge of state-of-the-art materials systems, with a focus on composites, advanced alloys and functional and engineering ceramics. The students explore the technologies used in the manufacture and processing of advanced materials and develop an understanding of the relationships between composition, microstructure, processing and performance. The student learn how to assess materials performance in service and develop an understanding of the processes of degradation in hostile conditions. They are also trained in the essential skills needed to design and develop the next generation of high performance engineering materials, establishing a strong foundation for a future career in industry or research.

Course unit details

The taught units cover the structure and design of advanced engineering materials and provide graduates with an increased depth and breadth of knowledge of materials science, technology and engineering.

Taught units include:
-Introduction to Materials Science
-Industrial Processing of Materials
-Advanced Composite Materials
-High Performance Alloys
-Advanced Analytical Techniques
-Functional and Engineering Ceramics


To underpin the research and teaching activities at the School, we have established state-of-the-art laboratories, which allow comprehensive characterisation and development of materials. These facilities range from synthetic/textile fibre chemistry to materials processing and materials testing.

To complement our teaching resources, there is a comprehensive range of electrochemical, electronoptical imaging and surface and bulk analytical facilities and techniques.

Career opportunities

Our graduates of this programme have gone on to fill key posts as materials scientists, engineers, managers and consultants in academia, industry and research and development. You may also be able to advance to PhD programmes within the School.

Accrediting organisations

The MSc in Advanced Engineering Materials is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IoM3) with the award of Further Learning.
