Materials Science

The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.

By focusing on research and development, materials science is able to provide new materials for use in industries. Materials science relies on several scientific and engineering departments to work together to problem-solve for the future.

Ireland is an island to the north-west of continental Europe. It is the third-largest island in Europe and the twentieth-largest island on Earth. To its east is the larger island of Great Britain, from which it is separated by the Irish Sea.

Dublin, which is from Leinster province, is a modern center of educational institutions that are famous for quality education. This city has great cultural importance. It offers three major universities to education seekers: The University of Dublin, The National University of Ireland and Dublin City University.

Applicants whose first language is not English must also demonstrate English language proficiency of IELTS 6.5 (no band less than 6.0 in each element), or equivalent. Testimonial Student Profile Richard Ruane. 'I chose the one year masters in Materials Science and Engineering at UCD as this was without doubt the only course of its type in Ireland, not to mention UCD’s School of Mechanical and Materials Engineering long established reputation as the finest school of engineering in Ireland. My background was initially in chemistry, having obtained an undergraduate degree in Chemical and Pharmaceutical Science from DCU. However, I decided to shift towards materials science, an incredibly broad discipline in itself, as it has been and will continue to be the field which contributes most to the advancement of technology. In this course you will study anything from biomedical applications of titanium alloys to the materials science behind nanomaterials like graphene. Wherever your interests lie, this program will give you a broad yet detailed understanding of materials science and its engineering applications. I highly recommend this course to anyone who has an interest in becoming a materials scientist or engineer. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]

Testimonial Graduate Profile Gavin McGlynn Graduate I chose this course as I was interested in working with the smallest building blocks in engineering. Once in the course I became fascinated by CSI-like investigations used to understand a material and how to improve its properties. My work placement brought me to the UK to work with polycrystalline diamond composites and was so fascinating that I did my research project with the company.Life in UCD also has the potential to be very rich. As well as studying, I had the chance to join and run many clubs and societies, experienced other cultures, picked up new sports and made friends from all areas of this diverse college. The course itself covered a broad range of processes and applications but was also flexible and allowed me to delve deeper into areas of interest to me such as medical devices, composites and nano-materials. This flexibility allowed me to work with people from different backgrounds which gave me new perspectives on how to tackle problems. The skills I have gained during this degree have given me a great grounding, allowing me to work in almost any field. *Courses will remain open until such time as all places have been filled, therefore early application is advised [-]
