20 Credits SPRING

Aims/Description: The four year MEng course is for those who wish to pursue careers in the materials producing and using industries as process technologists, managers or researchers. A distinctive and important feature of the course is an industrial placement undertaken towards the end of year 3. The work placement will provide an insight into the work of a professional materials engineer in industry and will enable the student to put into context the material taught within the University-based part of the course.
