In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

The Challenge

Materials provide the foundation for the modern global economy. Moreover, materials, many of them critical, are becoming increasingly relevant for the shift to a decarbonizing society as materials enable the transition to renewable energy, electric mobility, resource efficiency, among others. In order to ensure a future society is supplied with a sustainable stream of raw materials, robust solutions and game-changing technologies will be pivotal to ensuring material supply keeps pace with demand.
