Advanced Metallurgy (Distance Learning) MMet

This degree programme is fully accredited by the IOM3.

This is a distance learning version of our long established MMet Advanced Metallurgy course. Our MMet Advanced Metallurgy course has been running since the early 1950s and has produced over 1,000 graduates, with many now working in senior positions within metallurgical companies across the globe.

To complete this distance learning course, you will need to be directly working in, or have the support of, a metals/materials related industry. This is important as your 60-credit project module will be directly related to this industry, and will require the necessary facilities to carry out the research.

We teach an in-depth and up-to-date understanding of current developments in metallurgy and metallurgical engineering.

You'll learn the fundamentals of thermodynamics, structure and mechanical behaviour, and study more advanced topics like engineering alloys, processing, physical metallurgy, modelling and performance in service.

Many of our graduates go on to senior positions within their current employers or in the wider metallurgical community. The course also provides the ideal background for pursiuing a PhD degree in engineering materials.
