This programme brings together the latest developments in materials science and their application into new technology, providing you with specialist knowledge and skills which will enhance your engineering career.
It focusses on the theory and computational simulation of material structures for application into automotive, aerospace, technology and energy sectors. 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.
Our particular research strengths are drawn into the masters programme, 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.
The programme will prepare you for an exciting and rewarding career in materials engineering.
This programme is modular and consists of eight core engineering, modules totalling 165 credits, and one 15-credit option module.
The core modules can include;
Mechanics of Materials;
Advanced Materials Engineering;
Computer Aided Engineering Design;
New Developments in Materials Engineering
Engineering MSc Project
Some examples of the optional modules are
Contemporary Advanced Materials Research
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.
