Composite materials are increasingly replacing traditional metallic components in several industrial applications such as aerospace, wind turbine blades and in automotive industry. This MSc provides you with an in-depth theoretical understanding and practical knowledge of advanced composite materials.
The programme is based in the Advanced Composites Centre for Innovation and Science (ACCIS), one of the world's leading centres in composite materials, which houses a number of state-of-the-art composites manufacturing facilities.
ACCIS has strong industrial and research links with companies like Rolls Royce, Airbus, BAE Systems, GE Aviation as well as government research labs such as Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (UK Government research lab), European Space Agency, and US Army International Technology Centre.
Fees for 2016/17
