Materials Science and Engineering is closely linked with chemistry. We need to understand how different elements interact to make up a material, and how their chemistry can be altered to achieve desired material properties.

However, you don’t necessarily need to have a detailed knowledge of chemistry before you join our course. You will pick up what you need as you study with us.

This site is designed to give you some basic principles that you will need to know during your course.
