Materials Design and Engineering MSc

Course Description

Course Overview

Our Materials Design and Engineering MSc gives graduates in science and engineering disciplines an understanding of the role and application of materials. It provides knowledge of traditional and new materials and the science underpinning their behaviour and properties.

This course takes you through 120 credits of modules. Half of these are for an extended practical based project supported by our research laboratories and staff.
You will study a range of traditional and modern topics such as joining technology and nanomaterials.

The course will provide you with a high level of understanding of new and current materials, their applications, and design issues related to their use. You will also develop your reporting and research skills and extend your problem solving and written and verbal communication skills.

Many successful students from this course have gone on to do PhD research with us. The course gives an insight into the field of materials, bridging the gap between many science and engineering disciplines.
