The programme offers a stimulating environment in which to achieve your academic and creative potential, with a strong emphasis on original design work.
Your first two years are built around core Design Studio modules – tutorial-style sessions where you are encouraged to think and develop as an independent designer, supported by academic staff and industry professionals. You’ll gain computer-aided design (CAD), conceptual design and practical manufacturing skills. Alongside, more theoretical modules teach you the scientific and mathematical principles underpinning materials science.
Your studies culminate in a final-year individual project exploring a research area in materials. All students present their projects in the Queen Mary Design Show.
If you choose the MEng degree you’ll carry out a further ambitious group project in the fourth year, experiencing product development from inception to realisation.
This programme is accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3).
Queen Mary’s design programmes merge design with science and engineering in a unique way - no other university can compare!
