Develop a specialised knowledge of materials engineering in this course which is fully accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.
One of very few such courses offered at masters level in the UK. It's information rich but also provides a significant degree of hands-on practical work that utilises a wide range of manufacturing, testing and characterisation equipment. The limited number of graduates in this area, combined with the knowledge, expertise and practical skills developed in this specialised field, gives you a major advantage over other engineering graduates as you seek employment within the materials-related industries.
We have been successfully teaching a masters programme in materials engineering for more than 20 years, leading the way in the study of this field. Staff are very experienced and undertake both academic research and commercial projects, both of which support students’ learning experience.

What you'll learn
Gain exposure to the latest trends in design, materials, manufacturing processes, testing and advanced applications by taking full advantage of our modern technology and computing facilities.
You'll benefit from our first class research and knowledge transfer partnerships with local, national and international companies. Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, we have excellent industry links and encourage you to interact with industry too.
All projects are practically focused, with an emphasis on using industry standard manufacturing and testing equipment. Many projects are live, meaning you'll be working for real clients.
- Metallic Materials
- Plastics Materials
- Ceramics and Composites
- Smart Materials and Surfaces
- Forensic Materials Engineering and Energy Materials
- MSc Project – a focused piece of industrially relevant research, normally carried out on placement
Study modules mentioned above are indicative only. Some changes may occur between now and the time that you study.
You'll have excellent job prospects with this pedigree of materials engineering skills, expertise and knowledge.
This will give you enhanced employment prospects in almost all engineering, science, design and manufacturing disciplines. In particular, you may find roles in:
- design, energy engineering and renewables
- chemical engineering
- offshore engineering, materials testing
- advising and assuring companies
- regulatory authorities and automotive
- aerospace and defence industries
The entry requirement for this course is a Bachelor (Honours) Degree at a 2:2 or above. We look for applicants to have a background in physical science, engineering, physics, chemistry or sports science in order to be eligible for this programme. We may also consider lesser qualifications if you have sufficient relevant work experience within the industry. If English is not your first language, it is usually required that you sit an English language test in order to gain entry onto our postgraduate programmes.
