Course Description

Materials Science & Engineering is concerned with the development of materials that meet and exceed performance expectations for specific functions.

In the MSc Programme in Materials Science & Engineering  you will study the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of materials and learn about production techniques and the selection of appropriate materials for a wide range of applications. The behaviour of materials under different conditions will be examined and you will learn how to assess their suitability in products and industrial processes.

Career prospects

Corus, Stork, DAF, Bosch and Philips are just a few of the companies where graduates in Materials Science & Engineering have found positions. They are working in materials production, development and research in the industrial sector, or as materials experts in high level consultancy and management positions. Many work at steel and aluminium production firms.

Others have more unusual positions in archaeology, for example, or authenticating works of art on behalf of museums. Still others are employed in higher education and research, the polymer and recycling industries, patent offices, and industries involved in the development of high-tech micro devices for applications in biomedical prostheses.
