Teaching at Nanjing Tech

This page provides information about the BSc programme in Materials Physics taught jointly with Nanjing Technical University (NJTech).

Much of materials science is underpinned by physics. A good grounding in physics enhances the skills set of a materials scientist. This programme, which is a joint degree between NJTech and the Department of Physics and Astronomy The University of Sheffield (UoS), is designed to produce graduates with a deep and broad knowledge of materials science, physics and the mathematics required to support both subjects. Relevant chemistry is also covered. Students will also improve their English and develop many transferable skills including group working, oral and written communication and practical techniques.

During the first three years students will be based in Nanjing and study core physics, materials science, mathematics and chemistry. Courses will be taught by NJTech staff and visiting UoS staff. In year 4 students will transfer to Sheffield where they will study further physics and materials physics related topics
