MEng Materials Science and Engineering with Biomaterials / Careers

Year of entry: 2019

Career opportunities

Materials Science and Engineering graduates are highly sought after by employers, and all of our graduates either find employment in industry or go on to higher level study at the end of their degree. Careers include research and development, management positions, and technical roles within both large multinationals and smaller businesses. Companies our recent graduates have gone on to work for include Rolls Royce, Airbus, Jaguar, 3M, Alcoa, and Corus. Other graduates choose to apply their technical and analytical skills in fields such as patent law or accountancy. A Materials Science and Engineering degree also provides an ideal springboard for higher level study (eg towards a PhD), and approximately one third of our graduates follow this route.

Careers include research and development roles, management positions and technical sales within large materials manufacturing or end-users. The range of careers include things as diverse as teaching, engineering, consultancy and technical development roles.
