Master Materials Engineering - Máster en Ingeniería de los Materiales
This degree will provide you with a broad knowledge of the properties, processing, characterisation, design and selection of materials for transportation, energy and aerospace applications.
You will learn how to use computer aided engineering design and mathematical modelling of processes to engineer materials with advanced properties.You will study the relationship between processing, structure and mechanical properties of major classes of advanced engineering materials, and develop the organisational, practical and computational skills necessary to carry out research in advanced materials engineering.

2:1 degree (or equivalent) in a relevant subject
English Language Requirements: IELTS 6.0 or equivalent. If your first language is not English, you may need to provide evidence of your English language ability. If you do not yet meet our requirements, our English Language Teaching Unit (ELTU) offers a range of courses to help you to improve your English to the necessary standard.
Advanced Solid Mechanics
MATLAB and CAD
Advanced Fluid Dynamics
Option modules, choose one option module from:
Understanding Surfaces in Engineering
Modelling and Classification of Data
Systems Engineering and Spacecraft Design
Advanced Materials Modelling
Advanced Computational Fluid Dynamics
Dynamics of Mechanical Systems
After completing all the modules, you will apply the knowledge you have gained throughout the course to solving an engineering problem at a professional level. You will define the nature of the problem and draw up plans for tackling it, presented as a formal proposal (including a financial costing). Your project supervisor will meet regularly with you for feedback on the project.
Industry placement (optional)
You may, if you wish, choose to study for an MSc in Advanced Materials Engineering with Industry, which includes the opportunity to apply for a range of industry placements arranged by the Department. Your placement, of between three and nine months, will be undertaken after the taught part of the course, allowing you to acquire industrial experience and develop an appreciation of how the new skills you have acquired relate to problems in industry.
