Question: What is Materials Science, anyway?

Answer: Materials Science at Oxford is an interdisciplinary subject that makes use of knowledge from Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Engineering, and to a limited extent Biology & Medicine, but which has its own special character. There are few areas of research and development that combine such a wide knowledge base and put it to such diverse practical and commercial use. For more information on what is Materials Science see also:

Entrepreneurship and teamwork form part of the Department's Materials M.Eng degree programme too and it culminates in a full-time eight-month research project. But don’t just take my word for it – find out more at one of our many Open Days.
