This year we have updated final year options in energy conversion, storage and nano-materials, including state of the art graphene lectures.

We ensure our students develop a strong basis in the principles of materials science, leading on from their ‘A’ level studies in Maths, Physics and Chemistry, before developing applied skills through  laboratory work, individual and group research projects and CASE studies.
