The masters course in Polymer Materials Science and Engineering, offered in partnership with the School of Chemistry, is multi-disciplinary: it provides Chemists, Materials Scientists and Engineers 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 full range of issues, from fundamental polymer science, through polymer processing, to manufacturing are all covered.

Contents

The full MSc programme is made up of six taught course units and a five month research project. The taught units are:

- Control and Design of Polymerisations

- Polymer Characterisation

- Structure and Mechanical Properties of Polymers

- Polymer Processing

- Surface Engineering and Materials Design

- Soft Matter and Nanotechnology (option)

- New Directions in Polymerisation (option)

- Technical Textiles (option)

Requirements

You will need a UK 2.2 Honours degree in a Science, Engineering or Technology field, or equivalent International degree.

If you do not meet the minimum requirements and / or have a mix of other postgraduate or professional qualifications and relevant work experience, then your application will be considered for the progressive entry route, which means that you will be registered for the Certificate or Diploma level and you will be assessed at the end of each level before you progress to the next stage.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6.5
TOEFL paper-based test score : 570

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) 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.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
