Course Summary

Develop specialised knowledge in this course which is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

Overview

Offered only at selected universities in Scotland at Masters Level, this course is information rich, but also provides a significant degree of hands-on practical work that utilises a wide range of manufacturing, testing and characterisation equipment.

The limited number of graduates in this area, combined with the knowledge, expertise and practical skills developed in this specialised field, gives you a major advantage over other engineering graduates as you seek employment within the materials-related industries.

We have been successfully teaching a Masters programme in materials engineering for more than 20 years, leading the way in the study of this field. Staff are very experienced and undertake both academic research and commercial projects, both of which support students’ learning experience.

Course details

Gain exposure to the latest trends in design, materials, manufacturing processes, testing and advanced applications by taking full advantage of our modern technology and computing facilities.

The course has been designed to provide you with knowledge of materials (Polymeric, Metallic, Ceramic and Composite); allowing you to develop your skills further in more application and research based areas of materials engineering such as smart materials and materials in energy based applications.

You'll benefit from our first-class research and knowledge transfer partnerships with local, national and international companies. Accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, we have excellent industry links and encourage you to interact with industry too.

How you’ll be taught

You’ll learn by a variety of teaching methods including lectures, tutorials, practical sessions and independent study.

All projects are practically focused with an emphasis on using industry-standard manufacturing and testing equipment. Some projects are live, meaning you'll be working for real clients.

Assessments

Assessment methods include research and laboratory reports, presentations (oral and poster), and examinations.

Modules

This module allows the student to have a critical knowledge of engineering ceramics and composites. Engineering ceramics and glasses are in important classification of material and an understanding of these materials from their crystal structure and imperfections to their many astonishing applications including – thermal, electrical, mechanical and optical properties are explored. To evaluate the properties and gain knowledge of the various ceramic and glass structures and manufacturing processes must be characterised.
