We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Materials Science investigate the properties of natural and artificial materials. They develop expertise in the production and use of everyday components as well as advanced products and high-tech resources.
A diverse range of specialisms are available, with courses in Ceramics, Paper Technology or Metallurgy. Individual degrees may examine the inherent properties of these materials, or look more closely at their use and manufacture. Many programmes are wholly or partly interdisciplinary, drawing on other sciences such as Chemistry or on specific Engineering techniques.
Courses may be delivered through taught units, or based on more extensive research projects. A range of MSc, MPhil and MRes programmes are available, along with appropriate Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas.
Various employers will value the skills and experiences you gain with a Materials Science Masters. Obvious opportunities exist wherever a focus exists on the design and use of advanced materials.
This includes companies producing common consumer textiles as well as heavy goods manufacturers. Careers are also available with medical and pharmaceutical companies seeking to develop new equipment or dressings. Or you might work for environmental organisations focussing on the development of future renewable and sustainable materials.
