Structural Metallic Systems for Gas Turbine Applications

This programme focuses on research into structural metallic systems for gas turbine applications, covering alloy and process development, cost-reduction, life cycle analysis and environmental degradation.

Entry requirements

An Upper 2nd Class Honours degree or better, or an equivalent combination of qualifications and/or relevant and sufficient industrial work experience in any relevant mathematics, chemical/material/physical sciences, engineering (EPSRC provides funding only for UK/EU applicants).

Course modules

Modules include: effective project management; law; probability and statistics; presentations skill and team skills development. Optional modules: design against failure I; physical metallurgy of titanium and nickel; biomaterials; materials for sustainable environmental technologies; functional materials; design against failure ii; surface engineering; polymer science and soft matter; electron microscopy; intermetallics; nuclear engineering; net shape manufacturing.

Assessment methods

Each module is self-contained and assessed formally - most with a 2 hour written examination directly at the end of each module. The remainder of all years are spent on a research project and the final assessment is submission of the thesis.
