Birmingham University Materials Society

BUMSBirmingham University Materials Society,­ or BUMS as we're fondly known,­ is the departmental society for the School of Metallurgy and Materials. We combine social events and sport with career-related activities such as industrial visits and fairs, and top it all off with the annual Materials Ball to make sure you get the most out of your time with us!
