Science The Department of Materials is the top-ranked materials department in the UK. Research students come from a wide diversity of backgrounds being graduates in the traditional subjects of materials science, physics, chemistry and engineering and also mathematics, earth sciences and biology. Research interests of the Department extend over most branches of materials science, as well as some aspects of solid state physics and chemistry: they include the study of the properties of a wide range of materials of relevance in advanced technological applications, including metals and alloys, composites, semi- and super-conductors, polymers, biomaterials and ceramics.

Much of the research is carried out in close collaboration with industry. World-leading research is being done on:

  • Characterisation of Materials where there is emphasis on electron microscopy and related techniques
  • Processing of Materials
  • Modelling of Materials where there is attention to both structures and processes
  • Properties of Materials

Entry Requirements

Normally a minimum of an upper second-class UK undergraduate degree or equivalent in a suitable science, engineering or mathematics subject.
