- School of Materials Scholarship
Degree awarded: MSc by Research
Duration: 1 Years. [Full-Time]
Entry requirements: You will need to be a science and engineering graduate with at least a 2.2 Honours degree, or equivalent. Subject to satisfactory progress, it is possible to transfer to PhD at the end of the degree, requiring a further two years full-time study, or four years part-time.
Course fees: For entry in the academic year beginning September 2013, the tuition fees are as follows:
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.

The Advanced Aerospace Materials Engineering MSc by Research degree is an industrially relevant programme, developed at a time of great change within the aerospace industry. The move from aluminium airframes to carbon fibre reinforced polymers, the continuous drive to improve aeroengine efficiency and drive down cost, and the movement of the supply chain up the skills ladder are all driving dramatic change and creating demand for new skills, which this programme will provide.
One third taught, two thirds research project, the programme is divided into two semesters. The taught modules in semester one are made up of compulsory and optional units and include:
Concepts of Metals and Ceramics
Mechanical Properties of Metals and Ceramics
Composites, Principles and Practice
Engineering Ceramics and Glasses
In semester two, you will complete an eight-month supervised research project. The research project may be undertaken at the Schools of Mechanical Aerospace and Civil Engineering or Materials at The University of Manchester, or at one of our prestigious partner institutions in China, India, Singapore and USA, or even in industry.
Developed in co-ordination with major international aerospace companies, as a graduate of this programme, you will be qualified for key positions as a material scientist, engineer, manager or consultant within the aerospace sector. The course is also a launch-pad into an accelerated PhD in UK academia or study at one of our international partner institutions.

Academic entry qualification overview: You will need to be a science and engineering graduate with at least a 2.2 Honours degree, or equivalent. Subject to satisfactory progress, it is possible to transfer to PhD at the end of the degree, requiring a further two years full-time study, or four years part-time.
If English is not your first language, you will need to take and meet minimum requirements for the following recognised English language qualifications: IELTS (6.5 with no sub-test under 5.5); TOEFL (570 with 5.0 in TWE); CBTOEFL (230 with 5.0 in TWE). Please contact us if you have an alternative qualification and we will make an individual assessment.
To underpin the research and teaching activities, we have established state-of-the-art laboratories, which allow comprehensive characterisation and development of materials. These facilities range from synthetic/textile fibre chemistry to materials processing and materials testing.To complement our teaching resources, there is a comprehensive range of electrochemical, electronoptical imaging and surface and bulk analytical facilities and techniques.
