Student view: studying materials science

We have students from around the world on our Material Science programme. Some had it in their head to study the subject years ago. Others felt their calling was a different area, such as aeronautics, then discovered material science met their natural skills and interests.

As they explain, there’s a lot of fun to be had, like building a self-powered boat. And while many industries simply appreciate the analysis skills we teach; there are a range of direct careers, from sports equipment and transport to architecture. As a relatively new area, there aren’t many experts in the field, either.
