Our Advanced Materials MSc is a springboard for career development, new employment opportunities and postgraduate research. It provides a strong platform for workplace-based continuing education, with many part-time students funded by their employers.
Our Advanced Materials MSc is a broad-based, flexible modular programme, giving you a thorough understanding of advanced engineering materials, their manufacture, and the techniques used for their characterisation.
You’ll choose modules which are taught as one-week short-course modules, comprising a blend of lectures, laboratory sessions and tutorials. The modules cover a broad range of content including metals, polymers,
ceramics, composites, nanomaterials, bonding, surfaces, corrosion, fracture, fatigue, analytical techniques and general research methods. You’ll also undertake a materials-based research project, which is made up of the Research Project Planning and Project modules. The MSc in Advanced Materials is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) when a project is undertaken.
