The masters programme in Polymer Materials Science and Engineering is a multi-disciplinary taught programme which examines in-depth the wide range of issues relating to structural and functional polymers. The programme prepares you for a career in industry or for an academic or research career via PhD.
The programme is part of the Manchester Materials Masters programme, and you can apply for one of the MMM Scholarships for 2008/09:
All scholarships are awarded based on the merit of your application, against the applications of other candidates and so it is advisable to apply early. There is no separate scholarship application, simply complete the normal programme application form.
UK/EU students: If you are from the UK/EU, then you have the opportunity to be awarded a MMM Scholarship covering up to 100% of your tuition fee.
Overseas students: If you are from a country outside of the EU, then you have the opportunity to be awarded a part-tuition fee MMM Scholarship.
Multi-disciplinary The Polymer Materials Science and Engineering programme, offered in partnership with the School of Chemistry, is multi-disciplinary and provides you with a rich understanding of both traditional commodity plastics and speciality polymers with increasing applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields, and in electronics and nanotechnology.
The programme The complete MSc programme is made up of taught course units and a five-month dissertation project (MSc) or six-week short project (Diploma). The taught course units are delivered through a combination of lectures and practical laboratory work. The course units cover a wide range of topical subject areas:
Polymer Chemistry and Molecular Characterisation Polymer Processing, Structure and Properties Advanced Polymer Science and Design
You will be assessed by a combination of examinations and course work, and you will complete an industrial case study which supports development of your transferable skills.
