Why study Materials Science at Manchester?

Get to grips with Materials Science at Europe’s largest and most diverse university programme devoted to the subject. Gain an understanding of the fundamental behaviour of materials– from jet engines to nanorobots, artificial tendons to bulletproof vests – including issues of sustainability in materials processing and the environmental impact relating to recycling, extraction and energy balance. You’ll also explore materials of the future, such as graphene.

Mix theory with application and take opportunities to meet potential employers at our annual Made in Manchester event. All of our MEng courses are accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining – leading you to that
all-important Chartered Engineer status.
