About

Studying the Materials Science and Engineering programme from University of Birmingham, you will develop a fundamental understanding of how the properties of a material, such as strength, electronic properties and biocompatibility, are affected by the material’s structure, such as its crystal structure or microstructure.

Overview

This knowledge can then be used to formulate strategies to develop new materials, such as alloys able to operate at higher temperatures for jet engine blades or high-toughness ceramics for armour applications. This Materials Science and Engineering programme from University of Birmingham will equip you with the skills required to join a wide variety of industries in the capacity of materials specialist, or continue your education at a PhD level.

Why study Materials Science and Engineering Masters at Birmingham?

  • Materials underpin almost all industrial sectors and the global challenges have increased the demand for new materials. Accordingly, there is a growing demand for materials engineers and researchers worldwide and in rapidly developing countries in particular. The School of Metallurgy and Materials has long been a centre of excellence in materials research and education. 
  • The course is designed for graduates who want to acquire knowledge, concepts and research skills in advanced materials in order to seek a research or technology development career in materials. It will also provide excellent preparation for those wishing to undertake the classic PhD, new PhD with integrated studies and EngD.
  • One of the best centres for materials research in the UK.
  • World-leading and unique facilities, such as the £60M High-Temperature Research Centre.
  • Strong collaborations with a large number of industrial partners, including Rolls-Royce, Baosteel and many others.
  • Wide range of research activities, from the atomic scale to components.
