Overview

The complete Polymer Materials Science and Engineering course from The University of Manchester is made up of taught course units and a research dissertation. The taught course units are delivered through a combination of lectures and practical laboratory work.

Whilst it is anticipated that access to equipment, or work on projects for which such access is required may be limited during the period of the move, plans are underway to ensure that any disruption caused is minimised, a wide selection of dissertation projects will continue to be available, and excellent student experience remains pivotal.
