MSc (Eng) Advanced Materials Manufacturing

Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Faculty of Engineering

Our one year postgraduate taught courses provide an innovative programme of study in which students are challenged to achieve their best; developing specialist skills and knowledge sought after by employers, as well as establishing an ideal background for PhD research.

I would suggest to anyone going to university to look at courses like this, which give you considerable industrial exposure. You gain necessary insight and develop a network so that, once you do leave academia, there are a considerable number of avenues you can explore to start your career.
