Materials Science with Nuclear Engineering MEng (Hons)
Designed in consultation with the nuclear industry, this course is fully accredited by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining.

In the first two years you'll receive a thorough grounding in the science of materials. You'll learn how to tailor the structure, composition and processing of materials to meet design requirements.

All MEng courses include a guaranteed five month paid industrial placement, which may be in the UK or abroad. This is a great way of getting additional experience and improving your CV.

In the third and fourth year of the MEng degrees, you'll take part in four Industrial Training Programmes, focusing on the areas of nuclear, glass, aerospace and advanced manufacturing. For each, there are small group seminars with industry experts and engineers, academic lectures and visits to industry sites and technology centres. You'll apply
your materials science and engineering knowledge to analyse and solve a real current industrial problem.

All our students also take the Global Engineering Challenge. Working with students from other engineering courses, you'll have to find creative solutions to problems. The project looks at challenges faced by communities throughout the world. It's designed to develop you as a professional engineer and get you thinking about sustainable solutions.
