Advanced Engineering Materials

The taught units cover the structure and design of advanced engineering materials and provide graduates with an increased depth and breadth of knowledge of materials science, technology and engineering; there is particular emphasis on introducing, and extending, basic materials concepts that govern the control of a materials structure and performance, through the study of advanced alloys, ceramics and composite systems and their comparison to more traditional materials; in addition, the course provides an insight into state of the art materials processing techniques, as well as more novel materials, such as metal matrix composites and functional ceramics; students also receive training in engineering communication, materials selection and advanced techniques of materials characterisation.
