What will I learn?

Material Science and Engineering is at the heart of many of the more well know engineering, science, and design subjects. Everything is made of something by something and therefore materials are involved. Material science explores how the structure of a material at the micro, or even atomic scale can influence the final properties of product or component and how materials respond to external influences such as mechanical loading or environment.A degree in Materials will provide you with a huge range of career options across multiple sectors. Our graduates are enjoying roles in renewable energy, developing new solar cells and wind turbines, they are protecting our cars from degradation and improving fuel efficiency through the development of lightweight materials. A number of graduates have pursued a career with top aerospace companies where their skills in materials properties and failure analysis are invaluable when pushing jet engines to the limits. Materials Science and Engineering at Swansea is ranked **1st** in the UK for **Graduate Prospects** ( on track) (Complete University Guide 2022).You will meet representatives from the more than 40 companies, including Rolls Royce, Tata Steel, BASF, NSG Airbus, Timet and GE, who support us through guest lectures, funded placements, PhDs, career guidance as well as providing us advice on what needs to be included in the degree. **We guarantee that you will be made a conditional offer for a course at Swansea University.
