Undergraduate degrees in Materials Science and Engineering
We design our courses to inspire and challenge. They're based on the latest developments in research and industry, to prepare you for the professional world.
BEng/MEng Materials Science and Engineering
Our core undergraduate degree - discover the underlying principles of Materials Science, and how this is applied across Materials Engineering situations. Keep your course general, with optional modules, or choose a more specialised course, as shown below, before the end of Year 2.
BEng Materials Science and Engineering (Year in Industry)
An identical course to the core Materials Science and Engineering degree, with the option to undertake industrial experience through a one-year placement at the end of Year 2.
MEng Materials Science and Engineering (Research)
Some Materials students decide they want to undertake further study after finishing their degrees, such as doctoral research leading to a PhD. This course includes modules developed for our PhD students, as well as two individual research projects.
Drawing on Sheffield's great history of metallurgy, you'll focus on the nature, properties and processing of metals as well as complete an industrial placement in the metals industry.
