What you'll study
This Advanced Polymer Science and Engineering MSc programme at Queen Mary University of London capitalises on the School of Engineering and Materials Science’s research strengths in the innovative area of polymers and composites. You’ll be immersed in our research culture, joining one of our research teams to complete an independent research project related to these areas.
Your modules will prepare you for your research project, while also increasing your knowledge of the structure and behaviours of different polymer materials. You will also cover topics in nanocomposites and nanotechnology and nanomedicine. You’ll also learn how to decide what materials are most suitable for the design of different products and how to take the environmental impact of these materials into account.
Not only is this MSc’s curriculum closely aligned to current industry needs, you can gain significant practical experience in our world-class processing facilities, including the NanoVision Centre for Advanced Microscopy, which combines high resolution imaging with structural, chemical and mechanical analysis.
Nanoforce Technology Ltd is a wholly-owned Queen Mary subsidiary devoted to nanomaterials research for exploitation by industry. It houses facilities such as spark-plasma sintering for the development of nanoceramics and dedicated equipment for the production of polymer nanocomposites.
- Six compulsory modules
