Materials Science and Technology
This challenging inter-disciplinary programme spans the major classes of engineering materials used in modern high technology manufacturing and industry; the course has considerable variety and offers career opportunities across a wide range of industry sectors, where qualified materials scientists and engineers are highly sought after.
Normally an upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in a science or engineering subject; applicants with a good lower 2nd Class degree are considered; for part-time applicants, working in industry, lower level qualifications along with relevant industrial experience are considered.
Full time: core modules: advanced characterisation techniques; surface engineering; ceramics: processing and properties; design with engineering materials; sustainable use of materials; metals: processing and properties. MSc project: optional modules: plastics processing technology; industrial case studies; materials modelling; adhesive bonding; rubber compounding and processing; alternative modules: polymer properties. Part-time: core modules; ceramics: processing and properties; design with engineering materials; sustainable use of materials; metals: processing and properties; surface engineering; plastics processing technology. MSc project: optional modules: industrial case studies; adhesive bonding; rubber compounding and processing; marketing; alternative modules: polymer properties; advanced characterisation techniques; materials modelling.
Modules are assessed by a combination of written examination, set coursework exercises and laboratory reports; the project is assessed by a dissertation, literature review and oral presentation.
