Course description

This master's course 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.

Focusing on composites, advanced alloys and engineering ceramics, you will explore the technologies used in the manufacturing and processing of advanced materials and develop an understanding of the relationships between composition, microstructure, processing and performance.

You will learn how to assess materials performance in service and develop an understanding of the processes of degradation in hostile conditions. You will also be 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.

This course aimed at students who have a strong materials background wish to gain more specialised knowledge of the principles, structure, processing and design of advanced engineering materials. However, it is suitable also for graduates from other engineering and science backgrounds who wish to specialise in materials engineering.

Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), the University of Manchester's new £400m purpose built home for engineering and material science, is nearing completion. The physical move to the new development is scheduled to take place between January 2021 and December 2021. Whilst it is anticipated that access to equipment, or work on projects for which such access is required may be limited during the period of the move, plans are underway to ensure that any disruption caused is minimised, a wide selection of dissertation projects will continue to be available, and excellent student experience remains pivotal. If you have any questions about how the move may affect you, please contact 

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.

Find out more by visiting the  postgraduate teaching and learning  page.

Coursework and assessment

We will assess your progress using:

  • written reports
  • oral presentations
  • laboratory reports
  • examinations
  • dissertation project

Facilities

Underpinning the research and teaching activities are fully equipped laboratories, which allow comprehensive characterisation and development of materials. These facilities range from synthetic/textile fibre chemistry to materials processing and materials testing. Also complementing our teaching resources, there is a comprehensive range of electrochemical, electron optical imaging and surface and bulk analytical facilities and techniques.

Our facilities include state-of-the-art electron microscopy, a dedicated centre for X-ray tomography and a unique set of processing equipment for metals, polymers, ceramics and composites.

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. For more information, visit http://www.iom3.org  

Career opportunities

Our graduates have gone on to fill key posts as materials scientists, engineers, managers and consultants in academia, industry and research and development.

An Advanced Engineering Materials MSc also provides a solid base for further study and some graduates progress on to complete a PhD.
