About

This Advanced Materials Science and Engineering MSc programme from Imperial College London is suited to talented engineers and scientists with a passion for understanding and creating innovative materials. It will equip you with core knowledge of Materials Science and Engineering that can be applied to any materials-based career, giving you flexibility in the job market.

Overview

This flexible Advanced Materials Science and Engineering MSc programme from Imperial College London is a stand-alone qualification designed to prepare students to solve problems in materials science and engineering under the exacting conditions we encounter today.

The Advanced Materials Science and Engineering programme is broad, covering many aspects of both the science of materials and engineering applications, and includes course work and original research components.

The students will have access to world leading knowledge and infrastructure by working on real projects as part of established research groups, and you will be motivated to develop your ability to research, design, assess, implement and review solutions to real-life engineering problems across a wide range of materials.

This course aims to equip you with knowledge and understanding of the key structural properties of different classes of materials. You will gain skills in characterisation of materials, in particular their structural, thermal, morphological and chemical properties.

You will use the principles and underlying theory of a range of characterisation methods – including X-ray Diffraction, Focussed Ion Beam, Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry, Atomic Force Microscopy, Electron Microscopy and Scanning Probe Microscopies – as well as a range of modelling tools, applicable to a broad spectrum of materials types at different length scales.
