All our undergraduate degrees share the same first two years, covering the production, structure and properties of engineering materials. The basic principles are taught in increasing depth throughout these two years.

Assessment

You can expect a variety of assessment types, such as:

– Performance in the Teaching Laboratory
– Laboratory reports
– Online programming tests
– Written coursework
– Group project reports
– Written examinations
– Poster presentations
– Research thesis
– Oral presentations


departmental provision

There may be additional costs related to your course or programme of study which have to be budgeted for in addition to tuition fees and living expenses. This section provides examples of these and it is possible that all, or some, of these will be relevant to you.

Please note that the cost figures given are based on what such costs were in previous academic years and these are likely to change year to year. However, it is useful for you to be aware of the types of things you may have to pay for and their cost in previous years.

This section details whether the additional costs are essential or optional. Essential costs are highlighted as costs that you will need to pay to fully participate and complete your studies. Optional costs are not essential to your studies and you will be free to opt out of these.

Summary

 

Laboratory equipment

You are provided with laboratory books and materials (such as experiment samples) for your practical classes.

Laptop computer

You will need a laptop for some classes and coursework. The laptop must meet a minimum specification. For the 2017–18 academic year this was:

  • Windows 10 capable
  • Intel i5/i7 6th/7th generation processor
  • 8GB RAM
  • 256 GB SSD HDD

The Department of Materials has a number of laptops available for loan for the duration of your course. A deposit of £100 is required, refundable when you return the laptop at the end of your course. You will have the chance to indicate whether you wish to take part in the laptop loan scheme when contacted by the Department in the September before you start your course.

If you choose to borrow a laptop, you will be sent an invoice for the deposit amount which is payable online before the start of term. A variety of payment methods are available.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Wearing personal protective equipment is compulsory for some activities on this course. Where this applies, the Department of Materials will provide you with the necessary PPE free of charge to ensure you can undertake lab work safely. This includes:

  • Goggles
  • Lab coat

Software

You are provided free computer software, which is required to complete coursework, including:

  • MATLAB
  • Office 365
  • Solid Works
