- Program Detail
M.Sc. in Engineering Materials (Advanced Mechanical Engineering Science)
Material properties, their limitations and engineering context are widely studied in this course. You will develop your knowledge of microstructural and surface characterisation and investigate the performance of structural materials in engineering applications.
The year is divided into two semesters. Each semester, you will study core modules as well as choosing specialist modules, including Biomaterials and Fuel Cells and Photovoltaic Systems. You will advance your understanding of materials manufacture, design and their use in transport applications in the aerospace, marine and automotive sectors. There is also the opportunity to advance your management skills in the first semester.
The final four months will focus on research. You will complete a research project, taking advantage of our many facilities, including a 3D computed tomography imaging laboratory to study internal structures of materials.
