Our MSc in Advanced Materials is structured in a modular format, meaning that each module is complete within itself and available as a short course.
Such courses are ideal for delegates seeking experience in specific subjects for professional development and highly tailored to industry requirements in the related domains.
These short courses have been approved for "Professional Development" by IOM3 (Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining).
Academic year 2016-17
Short courses are carefully constructed to form modular components of the MSc in Advanced Materials. Each course is complete in itself and can also be undertaken by delegates seeking experience in specific subjects for professional development.
