We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Glass Technology involve the critical analysis and technical development of the mineral compounds which form glass and glass derivatives.
Ceramics and Glasses Research are just two related postgraduate specialisms. Entry requirements usually include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject, such as Ceramics, Materials Science or Design Technology.
Glass is a huge factor of our everyday lives: it’s in the technology we use, the vehicles we drive, and the buildings that we live and work in. As such, study opportunities are almost endless within this field, with numerous specialisations available for future careers within different industries.
For example, you might want to specialise in smart glass technologies, exploring the ways in which the properties of glass can be developed to achieve different transmission effects. This would be used, for example, to create tinted windows for buildings, vehicles and spectacles.
Alternatively, you might branch into the design of glass for different interfaces, such as human-computer interaction, including mobile technology, or even the ergonomics of automobiles and aircraft.
Careers may involve the manufacture and distribution of products such as windows, homeware, and mobile technology. Other possibilities include regulation or policy-making for industrial authorities.
