Alongside the core engineering modules, you will also study three management modules taught by the Business School which will help you develop transferable professional management skills that will enhance your study experience and improve your career prospects.

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 programmes, 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.

MSc Materials Engineering with Management will prepare you for an exciting and rewarding career, whether you have a desire to lead and manage teams, or wish to progress in a technical materials engineering role.

Programme Structure

This programme is modular and consists of seven core modules totalling 150 credits, and two 15-credit option modules.

Core modules

The core modules can include; Mechanics of Materials; Software Modelling; Advanced Materials Engineering; Computer Aided Engineering Design; Management Concepts; Professional Skills; and Engineering MSc Project
