Aims:
To provide for the development and implementation of specialist knowledge/methods in the design and operation of processes to engineer materials with advanced properties.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Interactive lectures from invited specialists and staff engaged in research, present students with the core theory. Directed study and formative self-assessment is used to extend and consolidate this learning. Laboratory sessions are used to give practical experience and expose students to process equipment.
