Materials Science and Engineering
MEng (JM10), BEng (JM11), MEng (J510), BEng (J511), BSc (J551)
The Materials Science and Engineering programmes provide a thorough grounding in the physical and chemical structure of materials, the properties of materials, manufacturing processes and design. Academically, the programmes are a bridge between the pure and applied sciences, while vocationally they constitute a training which embraces a plurality of disciplines and is in demand throughout industry and business.
These programmes cover all materials: metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites. This is essential for students who wish to work in multi-disciplinary engineering sectors such as automotive or aerospace manufacture, where optimisation of material selection is critical.
Minimum Entry Requirements:
BEng: 300 pts (BBB)
MEng: 360 pts (AAA)
Must include at least two science or maths A-levels (physics, biology, chemistry, or maths).
