  • Gain in-depth understanding of key factors shaping the design and selection of materials used in advanced engineering applications, their processing, properties and stability.
  • Develop valued research, team working, data analysis and communication skills
  • Study at a university ranked 4 th in the UK and among the top 35 in the world for Materials Science (QS World University Rankings 2017).
  • Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2019, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MSc (full-time)
  • UK/EU students (per annum): £11,000 
  • International students (per annum): £23,500

The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.

Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.

Entry requirements

English language

If English is not your first language, you will need to take and meet minimum requirements for the following recognised English language qualifications: IELTS (6.5 with at least 6 in listening and writing and 5.5 in reading and speaking); Internet based TOEFL: speaking - 20, reading - 20, writing - 22, listening - 22, overall 90. Please contact us if you have an alternative qualification and we will make an individual assessment.

English language test validity

Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

Other international entry requirements

We accept a range of qualifications from different countries. For these and general requirements including English language see entry requirements from your country .

Application and selection

How to apply

To apply, please see http://www.manchester.ac.uk/pgapplication   

As there is high demand for this course we operate a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year. Due to the competition for places, we give preference to students with grades above our minimum entry requirements. If we make you an offer, you will have 8 weeks in which to accept. Any offers not accepted within 8 weeks will be withdrawn. 

  • Stage 1: Application received by 1.11.18; decision by 21.12.18
  • Stage 2: Application received by 1.1.19; decision by 22.2.19
  • Stage 3: Application received by 1.3.19; decision by 19.4.19
  • Stage 4: Application received by 1.5.19; decision by 14.6.19

Whilst we aim to give you a decision on your application by the deadline date, in some instances due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received, it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next deadline date.

Please note: All places are subject to availability and if you apply at one of the later stages, some courses may already be closed. We therefore recommend that you apply early in the cycle to secure your place with us.

If you have not yet completed your undergraduate studies, please submit your latest transcripts with your online application, together with the other supporting documents, including a list of your final year units and your current average expressed as a percentage, verified by your current institution.

Advice to applicants

If you are made an offer, in order to confirm your place you will be required to complete and return an acceptance form along with a deposit payment of £1,000 on or before the deadline date stated in your offer letter.

Once we receive your payment, your place on the course will be confirmed.

The deposit is non-refundable, except in the following situations:

  • You fail to meet the conditions of your offer
  • You are refused a visa or entry clearance to enter the UK
  • Your application for government funding has been unsuccessful

Evidence must be provided before a refund will be processed.

If your offer specifies an English Language condition which you subsequently do not meet, the Admissions Team will require the official certificate of an English Language test taken after the date of the offer as evidence that you have attempted to meet your offer conditions. The English language test certificate provided with your application documents is not accepted as proof that you have attempted to meet your offer conditions as it will pre-date the offer.

Aims

On successful completion of the MSc in Advanced Engineering Materials, students will have:

  • Acquired a detailed knowledge of state-of-the-art materials systems
  • Know out how 21 st century materials perform and survive in hostile conditions
  • Understand how their structure is engineered from the nanoscale upwards
  • Discover the technologies used in their manufacture and processing
  • Acquired skills in materials selection and engineering design
  • Acquired research skills in advanced testing and characterisation, data analysis and scientific reporting.

Teaching and learning

The course is delivered through a mix of lecturing, blended small and small group tutorials with hands on research training.

We use a range of teaching and learning methods, including tutorials, workshops, seminars and research projects. These are supported by an e-learning infrastructure that includes on-line feedback, lecture and lab podcasting and close academic supervision.
