How can you help?

Learning from the experiences of alumni can really help our current students and recent graduates, and we regularly invite our alumni to volunteer their time to support the department. This may be participating in a Speed Networking event, providing us with a career profile, or offering to mentor a student.

We produce a Department Newsletter, Interfaces, which brings you news from the world of Materials, from us and elsewhere, and how discoveries made through the years affect our lives today.
