Information for 2020/21

Our MSc courses will begin on schedule in the Autumn and we plan to reopen our campuses. We are looking forward to seeing you in person, if travel and visa arrangements allow. If you can’t travel to campus in time for the start of term, we want to reassure you that your academic Department has made plans which make it possible to offer you a high-quality remote educational experience during the Autumn term.

Your teaching will be a combination of on-campus (in-person) and remote learning (online). We call this ‘multi-mode’ delivery. Depending on official government guidance throughout the entirety of next academic year, the ‘multi-mode’ balance may be subject to change. We hope to be able to offer you increased on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the year.

For more information about multi-mode delivery, your learning experience and the steps we’ll be taking to keep you safe on campus if you are able to join us, please see our Covid 19 information for applicants and offer holders page and your learning experience page.

Postgraduate Taught (MSc) Courses

Materials Staff teaching

MSc in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering

The aim of the MSc in Advanced Materials Science and Engineering is to provide a comprehensive understanding of all aspects related to the applications and development in Materials Science and Engineering today. We motivate our students to develop their ability to research, design, assess, implement and review solutions to real-life engineering problems across a wide range of materials.

MSc Biomedical Engineering

The MSc Biomedical Engineering with Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering course is offered jointly with the Department of Bioengineering at Imperial College London and focuses on the design and synthesis of new materials that will be used as implants or prostheses. Key to implant development is the understanding of how the material design affects biological response.
