Materials Science and Engineering Meng (Hon)

Course Overview - Materials Science and Engineering Meng (Hon)

From aerospace, communications and medicine, right through to everyday consumer goods like TVs, technical fabrics for high-performance clothing and sports equipment, the discovery and development of new materials have impacted the world monumentally. Materials science is also at the forefront of global challenges like the move towards net zero, with new materials for energy generation and storage enabling reduced carbon emissions. This is why material scientists are highly sought after across a whole range of industries — and why it’s such a relevant discipline to learn.
