About the Department
For the past four years, over 95% of Sheffield materials graduates had secured employment or were in further study, six months after graduation.
Our history can be traced back to 1882, and has seen a number of significant developments in the field of Materials Science and Engineering. Our future looks just as exciting as we develop graduates with much sought-after knowledge and skills.
