Our Materials Science and Engineering degree (MEng) course is a carefully planned academic course which meets the specific requirements of industry and the relevant professional bodies and in particular the MEng degree offers a fast track route towards Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
Materials Science and Engineering (MEng) covers all the fundamental scientific, engineering and design aspects of Materials, their structure, properties, processing, in-service behaviour and environmental impact. Materials are at the centre of any engineering activity and lie at the heart of research and development aiming to improve performance, efficiency, sustainability and hence profitability.
Materials advancements are identified as strategically important to the UK and world economies. Materials engineers and scientists are involved with developments in high technology engineering such as aerospace, power generation, automotive sector and through all sectors of industry and consumer goods.
