Course Description

Materials engineering plays an essential role in our daily lives, from the simple toothbrush to quieter and more efficient aircraft engines and nano-scale devices used in automotive safety and health applications. This programme brings together the latest developments in materials science and their application into new technology, providing you with specialist knowledge and experience of working on an industrially focussed project. Internationally leading research projects support this course. Particular research strengths at Exeter include functional materials (those with extra functionality such as electro-magnetic screening, self-sensing and active materials, and materials with negative thermal expansion and Poisson?s ratios), polymers, composites and bio-materials. Current research includes projects on lightweight materials with reduced CO2 emissions for aerospace engines with enhanced vibration damping and damage tolerance, composites with large negative Poisson?s ratios for blast protection, materials with zero thermal distortion for space craft and aeroplanes, and next generation manufacturing processes such as additive-layer manufacturing. The programme prepares you for a career in the advanced technological sector or for progression to a PhD for those interested in pursuing a research pathway.
