Answer: Only the best kept secret in science, blending Physics and Chemistry, adding a hint of Biology, all in an engineering context, and all modelled with Mathematics! Entrepreneurship and Economics figure highly in the Department's Materials degree programme, to enable scientists to make the most of their discoveries and deal with businesses and investors confidently. But don’t just take my word for it – find out more at one of our many Open Days…
