Module description

Research projects can be carried out in a broad range of topics related to Materials Science and Engineering in any of the Research Groups within the School of Metallurgy and Materials. The School in which the project is based will provide the research supervisor and will arrange for all necessary facilities and resources.

Example individual research projects:

  • Crack initiation and propagation in nuclear AGR graphite components
  • Drug release from dental cements
  • Plasma carburising of nanostructured austenitic stainless steels
  • Effect of graphite-based materials on golf ball response
