MSc Materials Engineering brings together the latest developments in materials science and the application of new materials in manufacturing and technology.

You will gain a strong understanding of the properties and behaviours of different substances, from raw materials to finished products, identifying their strengths and limitations, enabling you to find solutions to complex contemporary problems.

Blending our MSc in Materials Engineering with modules in Management and Strategy, this degree is designed for engineers seeking to study their subject at an advanced level before moving quickly in to management or leadership positions.

Why this course?

  • This programme focuses on the theory and computational simulation of material structures for application into automotive, aerospace, technology and energy sectors.
  • Modules draw directly from our research in areas including functional materials (those with extra functionality such as electro-magnetic screening, self-sensing and active materials, and materials with negative thermal expansion and Poisson’s ratios), polymers, composites and bio-materials.
  • Taught in partnership with the University of Exeter Business School.

Programme Structure

This programme is modular and flexible, carrying 180 credits in total and offering flexibility in choice of modules studied.

MSc Materials Engineering with Management consists of seven core engineering modules totalling 150 credits, which includes the 60-credit Engineering MSc project, and two 15-credit option modules.

The programme begins in September each year and the taught elements are concluded by May. The Engineering MSc project, under the personal supervision of a research expert in the chosen area, continues until September.

Core modules

The core modules can include:

  • Mechanics of Materials
  • Software Modelling
  • Advanced Materials Engineering
  • Computer Aided Engineering Design
  • Management Concepts
  • Professional Skills
  • Engineering MSc Project

Optional modules

Some examples of the optional modules are

  • Contemporary Advanced Materials Research;
  • Functional Materials.
  • Strategic Innovation Management
  • Strategy.

The modules listed here provide examples of what you can expect to learn on this degree course based on recent academic teaching. The precise modules available to you in future years may vary depending on staff availability and research interests, new topics of study, timetabling and student demand

Teaching and assessment

The programme is delivered through a mix of lectures, seminars, tutorials, industrial presentations, case studies, industry visits, computer simulations, project work and a dissertation.

You will develop transferable skills such as management and communication skills, computational techniques, data handling and analysis, problem solving, decision making and research methodology. Many of these will be addressed within an industrial and commercial context.

You will be allocated a Personal Tutor who is available for advice and support throughout your studies, along with support and mentoring from graduates who are now placed in industry. There is also a Postgraduate Tutor available to help with further guidance and advice.

A research- and practice-led culture

We believe every student benefits from being taught by experts active in research and practice. You will discuss the very latest ideas, research discoveries and new technologies in seminars and in the field and you will become actively involved in a research project yourself. All our academic staff are active in internationally-recognised scientific research across a wide range of topics. You will also be taught by leading industry practitioners.

Maths support

Throughout your studies you will have access to support materials designed to refresh your knowledge of engineering mathematics. Mathematics for Engineers is a non-credit bearing online resource that covers the mathematics needed to undertake an MSc. It is an invaluable revision tool for those wishing to refresh their knowledge of common mathematical topics.
