About

Technological advances, as well as methodological issues, have contributed to the transformation of materials and their functions. A number of challenges lie ahead, as manufacturing supply chains become global, involving companies in strategic alliances and partnerships. Materials research is of great use here, as competition can only be achieved through the development of innovative approaches to the design, development and manufacture of novel materials and their characterisation.

This long established programme provides rigorous training in both theoretical and applied research for those who wish to pursue their career as a professional materials scientist.

This programme will:

  • Build on your engineering background to gain an advanced, yet broad knowledge in materials science, with the freedom to specialise through a research project.
  • Provide an insight into areas of manufacturing, planning and control systems, knowledge based systems and measurements and manufacturing systems. The course is interdisciplinary in nature and involves a combination of theoretical and practical approaches.
Programme structure MSc Materials Research is currently available for one year full-time study. The programme includes four core modules, one module option and a research project.
