The undergraduate degree courses in Materials Science and Engineering at Imperial contain a strong core of applied Physics and Chemistry. Teaching focuses on applied science, with a grounding in theory and a great emphasis on practical work. You’ll be expected to take part in challenging experiments with advanced equipment. The degree deals with the fundamentals of matter, both its structure and its properties. You’ll learn how to manipulate existing materials and how to develop new and improved ones. You will also study engineering and business skills to help you take the first steps into industry.

First and Second year

In the first two years of any degree with us you will cover all the fundamentals of Materials Science and Engineering through a series of core modules. These core modules are essential in giving you a broad understanding of Materials Science and Engineering (about both the physical and application aspects). They will open as many opportunities as possible for you to choose from a range options in the third and fourth years of your degree. These modules also include business elements.

Core modules:

Materials Chemistry and Biology
Materials Engineering
