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.

Sweden, officially the Kingdom of Sweden, is a Scandinavian country in Northern Europe. Sweden borders Norway and Finland, and is connected to Denmark by a bridge-tunnel across the Øresund. Sweden is a developed post-industrial society with an advanced welfare state. The standard of living and life expectancy rank among the highest in the world.

Best Masters in Materials Science in Sweden 2017. As competition between companies is getting tougher as the number of products on the market increases, many are realising the importance of product development and material knowledge as a competitive means. This programme covers the entire product development process, from conceptual engineering design to materials and manufacturing processes. The work of engineers within product development is creative and offers a great deal of variety. This Master's programme (two years) qualifies students for positions with the manufacturers and suppliers that develop and produce components or as consultants. Emphasis is placed on design and construction of technical components and products in regards to customer demands, use, producibility and production methods. Vehicles, household appliances, medical equipment and certain sporting goods are all examples of products made up of complex components. Making complex things simpler The steady increase in the use of computer support makes possible new methods, which are parallel to the entire product development process. With the help of advanced computer tools in design and construction, real and virtual prototypes can be produced much faster, and the time needed for development can be shortened. In addition, a product can be studied and tested at an early stage of product development for its design, usability, durability, safety and producibility. Important aspects of work with the development of components and products include the analysis of function and performance, the choice of materials and the methods of production. This programme gives an understanding of the theory behind... [-]

Master’s programme in Textile Engineering

University of Borås

Building a personal network is important and is supported in the School of Textiles environment through interaction with a range of people in design, technology and management professions. Upon graduation, you will have skills in and be prepared for employment within management or qualified research functions in textile-related engineering, for example material and product design and development, manufacturing, functional and interactive textile structures. You will be prepared for qualified tasks at the advanced level within the textile technology field and will have attained a comprehensive understanding of the textile value chain with specialisation in development, innovation and leadership. Upon graduation, you will have the ability to: demonstrate and... [-]

Master in Macromolecular Materials

KTH Royal Institute of Technology
Campus Full time September 2017 Sweden Stockholm

The Master’s programme in Macromolecular Materials provides students with the comprehensive tools needed to develop future materials for advanced health care, energy production, green packaging, surface coatings and many other applications. [+]

Master in Macromolecular Materials The Master’s programme in Macromolecular Materials provides students with the comprehensive tools needed to develop future materials for advanced health care, energy production, green packaging, surface coatings and many other applications. Programme outlineStudents will learn of design, synthesis, characterisation, production and development of polymer and fiber-based materials throughout the duration of the degree programme. The material group includes plastics, rubber, composites, paper, wood and other biological materials; students will be able to handle questions pertaining to the choice of raw materials (renewable versus fossil), and the choice of production processes, material combinations and manufacturing methods to achieve the desired characteristics in the finished product. Great emphasis is placed on environmental issues, such as environmentally-friendly material production and development of sustainable materials.The programme provides a solid base in the chemistry and physics of organic materials, as well as their connection to real-life applications. A broad range of courses allows students to customise their own degree profile enabling them to focus on individual areas of interest. The programme also establishes excellent laboratory skills and is closely linked to research at the Department of Fibre and Polymer Technology. Skills such as problem-solving and project work are developed and enhanced in many of the courses, as well as oral and written presentations.Degree projectThe degree project and Master’s thesis are the culmination of the academic programme and are usually undertaken at KTH, in a company setting, or abroad. The thesis topic may be chosen from a list of available projects at... [-]

Master in Engineering Materials ScienceThe Master’s programme in Engineering Materials Science is characterised by a cross-functional approach – focusing on both the understanding and study of current materials, processes and applications, as well as the development of new materials and processes.Programme outlineThe programme is open to students with materials backgrounds and has three different tracks, each focusing on different complimentary aspects of material and process development, while incorporating each students’ individual experience in the area. This makes the programme both comprehensive in the fundementals of the field, and tailored to meet personal academic and career goals.Track 1 - Industrial Materials (IMTA)Materials such as steel, lightweight metals and semi-conductors have made development possible for many years and will continue to do so in the future. Through the choice of courses, the student may decide to specialise in Materials Design, Process Science or, preferably, a combination of both areas. This track is only for students with a solid background in Materials Science and Engineering and Metallurgy.Track 2 - Materials and Process Design (MDNA)Materials and Process Design has, like Industrial Materials, a strong focus on materials and processes, properties and design. The content of the courses offered within this specialisation will cover all of the different areas of Engineering Materials Science and Metallurgy during the first term.

Programme overview – Master's in Physics, Materials Science

Materials are what make up everything around us and their properties are critical to the performance of any system or device where they are used. Almost every aspect of modern society is touched by a technology made possible by advances in materials. For example, the internet and mobile phones would not be possible without optical fibres and semiconductors. The study of materials is based on the relationship between the properties of a material (which determine its functionality), its structure, and the way that the material is assembled. Materials science is inherently multidisciplinary and includes subjects from both basic sciences and engineering, and from physics and chemistry.... [-]
