Course Summary

Overview

This course provides a deep understanding of the processing, nature and properties of a broad range of engineering materials. Only by understanding these can materials be truly designed for purpose. The course seeks to integrate materials behaviour and materials processing relevant to a wide range of industrial sectors, providing students with specific skills suitable for a wide range of careers in UK and international organisations involved in materials and product development. It also provides a firm foundation for a research path in Materials Engineering.

You will study the core principals of advanced materials over two semesters, alongside modules in materials categorisation and the mechanisms of failure of materials. This will provide you with a depth of knowledge and skills allowing you to make informed choices concerning applications, selection and design of advanced materials. Our teaching aims to produce graduates able to think and function in an integrated manner across all areas of materials engineering.

Careers

Expert staff can help you research career options and job vacancies, build your CV or résumé, develop your interview skills and meet employers.

Modules

This module requires personal engagement in the classes and there is no examination. In this way this module is like the Individual Project. It has three cycles each comprising students individually preparing a talk, and report, on a topic within a theme and with a title that has been negotiated with the Advanced Materials Teachers (Professor AB Seddon, Dr X Hou and Dr I Ahmed) straight after the teachers have delivered an introductory lecture on that theme.
