Focusing on composites, advanced alloys and engineering ceramics, you will explore the technologies used in the manufacturing and processing of advanced materials and develop an understanding of the relationships between composition, microstructure, processing and performance.You will learn how to assess materials performance in service and develop an understanding of the processes of degradation in hostile conditions. You will also be trained in the essential skills needed to design and develop the next generation of high performance engineering materials, establishing a strong foundation for a future career in industry or research.
This course aimed at students who have a strong materials background wish to gain more specialised knowledge of the principles, structure, processing and design of advanced engineering materials. However, it is suitable also for graduates from other engineering and science backgrounds who wish to specialise in materials engineering.
Teaching and learning
The Advanced Engineering Materials course from The University of Manchester is delivered through a mix of lecturing, blended small and small group tutorials with hands on research training.
We use a range of teaching and learning methods, including tutorials, workshops, seminars and research projects. These are supported by an e-learning infrastructure that includes on-line feedback, lecture and lab podcasting and close academic supervision.
Our graduates have gone on to fill key posts as materials scientists, engineers, managers and consultants in academia, industry and research and development.
An Advanced Engineering Materials MSc also provides a solid base for further study and some graduates progress on to complete a PhD.
