The School encompasses an exceptional breadth of research and training in materials, from design and development, to performance and protection and management and marketing.
The School's activities are built on its global reputation for excellence in research and teaching, reflected in the award of a Queen's Anniversary Prize for outstanding postgraduate training and research in Corrosion and Protection. This, together with close industrial links, provides graduates with an excellent launch-pad for their future careers.
A number of specialist School research centres have been established, providing a focus on specific research areas involving nuclear science and engineering, metal/polymer and composite characterisation, aerospace technology and innovative knitted materials.
Career opportunitiesTraditionally, the first destination of our materials science graduates was manufacturing industry, although approximately one third continued their education for a higher degree . In recent years, increasing numbers have found employment in IT companies, management consultancies and banking. Our degree programmes now span metallurgy, ceramics, polymeric materials, composites and biomaterials. All these materials themes are represented in the companies in which our graduates have found employment in recent years.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
