This 12 month programme provides a broad and deep understanding of the processing, nature and properties of a range of engineering materials. Only by understanding these can materials be truly designed for purpose. The course integrates materials behaviour and materials processing relevant to a wide range of industrial sectors.
This course will introduce you to the core principles of the design, nature and processing of advanced materials over two semesters, alongside core modules in materials categorisation and the mechanisms of failure of materials. This will provide you with a depth of core knowledge and skills allowing you to make informed choices concerning applications, selection and design of advanced materials.
This Advanced Materials course from University of Nottingham produces graduates who are able to think and function in an integrated manner across the areas of materials science and engineering.
It will provide you with specific skills suitable for a wide range of careers in UK and international organisations involved in materials and product development.
Students in the department have gone on to a variety of different careers, including civil engineers, engineering technicians, quality assurance and regulation officers and engineeringprofessionals.
As well as offering you the chance to pursue a fulfilling career within industry and related areas, the MSc programmes offered by the department provide an excellent foundation for further research and a significant number of our students continue their studies to PhD level and beyond.

You need the following GPA score:
Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Lower Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
