The objectives of the Materials Science and Engineering programme are:
To introduce concepts of design, selection and processing of materials for a range of applications in engineering and other disciplines.
To provide students with a solid background in Materials’ Science, focusing on the link between structure and physical and functional properties of materials.
To provide students with the practical, experimental and technical writing skills demanded by our industrial partners and collaborators
To build a critical awareness of the effects of processing conditions on the structure and physical properties of a material

Choose Exactly 10 credits from the following Modules:

NOTE : Select one of three modules from Module Group 1. If a student has done A level (or equivalent) Chemistry but not Physics they must opt for EGA106. If a student has done A level (or equivalent) Physics but not Chemistry they must opt for EGA103. If a student has done A level (or equivalent) Physics and Chemistry they must opt for EG-108. In the unlikely event that a student has no chemistry or physics background they would be best advised to do EGA106.
