Course Modules

In the first two years, the course content is the same for all the materials courses. The final years include a common section together with a very wide range of optional courses. You will be able to choose from options that provide routes to specialisation in materials production and processing, structural materials, and electrical materials.

You also have a choice of other courses, including courses offered by other departments within:

  • the Faculty of Engineering
  • the Centre for Co-Curricular Studies (e.g. languages)
  • Imperial College Business School (e.g. management and finance)
Students on the MEng courses will have an industrial placement between their third and fourth years of study in a relevant industry or research establishment. These placements can take place anywhere in the world – the Department has links with companies in places such as the USA, Australia, New Zealand and east Asia.

Teaching is by means of lectures, classwork, seminars, case studies and laboratory work.

In the first two years of the course, tutorials are given to groups of students by members of staff in particular subject areas. These tutorials play an important part in teaching. They encourage you to participate in informal technical discussions, and also to integrate subjects from different lecture courses.

Personal transferable skills are developed throughout the courses with skills-based exercises, and career development guidance provided by formal lectures and tutorials.

In the second year, you carry out a group case study on a component. As the course advances you perform more individual and group project work. These activities involve literature searches, exploration of new ideas and concepts and writing technical reports. Throughout the course you will develop an independent approach to your studies.

The first two years of the courses incorporate opportunities for you to develop language skills through the Imperial Horizons programme.
