Course Summary

For nearly 50 years, materials science and engineering has been a core strength at Loughborough University - we have a long standing international reputation for our research.

Our research activity focuses on today’s global challenges, including sustainability, nanomaterials, composites and processing. We adopt a highly disciplinary approach to our research and frequently interact with other departments and schools. Those undertaking a research degree with us will be part of a welcoming team, benefiting from a wealth of knowledge and experience of leading academics in their field of research. You will be provided with all of the technical skills and practical understanding needed to produce sustained, original work which will underpin your chosen career progression.

Our research is supported by a range of first class facilities, which have been designed to help you throughout your studies and fully equip you for your future endeavours. You will have access to state-of-the-art equipment for use in materials synthesis, processing and characterisation; the most notable of these being the Loughborough Materials Characterisation Centre (LMCC), which has a wide range of analytical techniques, including electron microscopy and surface analysis, some of which have capabilities that are unique in the UK.

Industry relevance is also a priority and many of our research projects are industry sponsored, with scientists and engineers from industry contributing to our output.
