University of Surrey

MSc in Advanced Materials

Featuring a wide selection of modular, flexible and relevant options, our programme offers an unrivalled variety of study choices.  The modules are taught as one week intensive short courses followed by open book assessment.

The Advanced Materials MSc is an opportunity to study the structure, processing and properties of a range of advanced materials and associated analytical techniques.  The principal objective of the programme is to equip science and engineering graduates with a thorough understanding of several classes of advanced materials and the means by which they can be characterised.  It also offers coverage of aspects of the selection, design manufacture and properties of materials for use in engineering applications.

The MSc can be taken full-time or part-time.  Full-time students study for 1 year whilst part-time students can take up to 6 years to complete the programme.

The modular MSc is an opportunity to improve your skills, career prospects and job satisfaction.  If you are a part-time student the MSc will benefit both you and your company; the company benefits from your increasing skills and knowledge of materials.  Meanwhile you will gain a recognised qualification and improve your promotion prospects.  The mutual commitment also improves job security while fostering employee loyalty.


Our Short Courses

Short courses are carefully constructed to form modular components of the MSc degree programme.  Each course is complete in itself and can also be undertaken by delegates seeking experience in specific subjects for professional development.
