If you have a strong materials background and want to gain more specialised knowledge of advanced engineering materials, this course is for you.
This Advanced Materials Chemistry Masters course enables you to develop and further your knowledge on a range of core modules, culminating in a materials engineering-led research project within one of our diverse range of research groups.
Throughout the course you’ll study the functional roles of nanocomposites and inorganic solids, develop an understanding of the interplay between structure and observed properties, and explore investigation methods. You’ll also study biomimetic and supramolecular approaches in materials chemistry.
You’ll study under the Chemistry team who are comprised of academic and support staff that are subject experts in organic, inorganic, physical and analytical chemistry. Teaching and student satisfaction are very important to us and we have won awards and recognition for this aspect of our work.
What you’ll study
You will be taught three core modules and you will conduct a research project. If you are a part-time student, you will continue to study the second year from the modules listed below.
Scientists from Vectura deliver some of the module content. Other guest lecturers will also present their research to you from a variety of other companies and universities.
Careers and employability
At Nottingham Trent University we know that your employability and job prospects are crucial factors in your choice of university. You need to know that your postgraduate degree will be worth the time and money you spend on it.
Our strength lies in the relevance of our degrees to the real world. In all subject areas, we encourage you to recognise your transferable skills and its application to a multitude of careers. By taking an MRes in Advanced Materials Engineering you will benefit from the progressive development of a variety of skills, such as advanced laboratory techniques and the critical analysis and synthesis of a breadth and depth of relevant chemistry-specific research.
Our graduates have gone on to work in a wide variety of job markets including:
- food and drinks
- liquid crystals
- advance materials engineering
- finance and sales.
Many graduates choose to undertake further study and this course provides a good basis for you to progress onto a PhD.
Although this Advanced Materials Engineering postgraduate degree does not offer a formal placement, it is vocationally focused and benefits from strong links with industry.
To us, research is about more than writing papers and proposing new ideas. By daring to think differently, we’re disrupting the research landscape and finding the answers to the questions that really matter. From conservation management to sustainable farming, we’re inspiring the brightest minds to rise up and find solutions to some of the most significant global challenges facing society.
