Materials underpin almost all industrial sectors and the global challenges have increased the demand for new materials. Accordingly, there is a growing demand for materials engineers and researchers worldwide and in rapidly developing countries in particular. The School of Metallurgy and Materials has long been a centre of excellence in materials research and education.
This one-year master course comprises 12 taught modules (two-thirds of the year) taken in Semesters I and II and an individual research project (one-third of the year) carried out in Semester III & summer. In addition to technical modules, the course also provides training for transferable skills such as the Team Skills Development module undertaken in a residential environment to facilitate the development of the team ethos and interpersonal skills.
Research projects can be carried out in a broad range of topics related to Materials Science and Engineering in any of the Research Groups within the School of Metallurgy and Materials or in industry. The project involves full-time research for one third of the academic year. The project report (which should be a maximum of 8,000 words in length) will be internally assessed by two academic staff.
About the School of Metallurgy & Materials Engineering
The School of Metallurgy and Materials ranked in the top quartile in the UK for world-leading research in the Research Excellence Framework (REF). Overall 86% of the research in the School was recognised as internationally excellent of which 31% was given the higher accolade of being world-leading. We are considered to be the leading school for many areas of metallurgical research. Our numerous interactions with industry span agreements lasting between three months and twelve years. We are proud to encompass a wide range of interests in the processing, characterisation, assessment and modelling of materials, including: - Alloy Processing - Characterisation and Modelling - Engineering Properties of Materials - Functional Materials Processing
