The PGDipMaterialsEng is for those who aspire to a career in materials processing and production, manufacturing, new materials deployment and development disciplines either in a technical or management role. This is well-suited to professionals looking to upgrade their knowledge in the materials engineering field.
Materials engineering challenges us to discover and design new materials that look in detail at the structure, properties and performance of basic resources that make up the world. Innovations in this space are often at the core of new technologies that change the way we live. The PGDipMaterialsEng offers a balanced understanding of materials design, synthesis and deployment, whilst cultivating management skills.
