Materials Science and Engineering

**Materials Science and Engineering at Swansea University is ranked 3rd in the UK for Student Satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2018)** Materials Science and Engineering looks at how the properties of matter can be controlled. It includes elements of physics and chemistry and links strongly to most other areas of engineering. Materials Engineers are at the cutting edge of almost all technological developments. Most innovations, from cars to sports equipment, are completely dependent on the choice of material and its performance. This degree will train you for a rewarding career in a range of engineering sectors including aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, sports, and energy generation. You will study specialist subjects on the structure, mechanical performance and functional properties of advanced alloys, polymers, composites and ceramics. You will have the opportunity to gain industrial insight through site visits to Tata Steel, Timet, Ensinger and Airbus. The degree will also provide a foundation for you to aim for the prized Chartered Engineer status. Our state-of-the-art facilities include: - Comprehensive computer systems for specialist and general purposes - World-leading equipment for characterisation of the mechanical properties of metallic, ceramic, polymeric and composite materials - Extensive range of laboratories housing scanning electron microscopes with full microanalysis and electron backscatter diffraction capabilities Our internationally-renowned materials research is funded by organisations such as Rolls-Royce, Airbus, the European Space agency and Tata Steel. These links provide students with excellent industry placements. Our Materials Science and Engineering degrees are accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining. **Materials Science and Engineering at Swansea University is ranked 2nd in the UK for Graduate Level Employment (DLHE 16/17 Graduates) – the average salary for our Materials Science and Engineering graduates is £25,000.** **Did you know all of our courses are available with a Year in Industry or Year Abroad?** These placement years increase our students confidence and communication skills as well as help them to gain valuable experiences that will ultimately enhance their employability.
