Exciting New Materials Postgraduate Courses at the University of Limerick

In response to the global employment demand for engineers and scientists with materials related knowledge, the University of Limerick is offering Two New Postgraduate taught courses in Advanced Materials and Biomedical Device Materials. These courses, offered through the Civil Engineering and Materials Science Department, have been designed to prepare students for R&D focused employment. Unique features include:

  • Specialised modules in research challenges in materials science, advanced processing, advanced characterisation and polymer therapeutics amongst others.
  • Training on state of the art Materials related research equipment
  • Invited lectures from international experts in Materials Science
  • Close industry linkages through project work and sponsorship
  • Opportunities to pursue further PhD study in Materials Science

Master Of Science (MSc) Biomedical Device Materials

Master Of Science (MSc) Biomedical Device Materials

INTRODUCTION

This one year M. Sc. programme is designed to produce highly qualified graduates who have an in-depth knowledge of the instrumentation involved in the analysis and characterisation of materials together with a detailed knowledge of Materials Science and Materials Processing. Specialist modules and a specialised research project will allow students to become fully briefed in Biomedical Device Materials and how such materials interact with the human body. With this knowledge base, graduates could expect to work in the quickly evolving high-tech Biomedical Device industry or to continue their education to PhD level.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the programme are:

  • To provide science, engineering and technology graduates with a competitive edge for a career in biomedical device companies
  • To provide graduates with key analytical skills and knowledge in the latest biopolymer and metallurgical technologies preparing them for a career in biomedical device R & D and / or product design
  • To develop graduates with excellence in Materials Science and Engineering capability to underpin National and International Industrial development

Department of Civil Engineering and Materials Science at University of Limerick

PROGRAMME OF STUDY

This Master of Science course is a two Semester plus Summer full time programme based on a modular credit system (90 ECTS) and the course outline is given below. In Semester 1, students study analytical techniques (microscopy, electron microscopy and X-ray analysis; X-ray diffraction; IR-, UV- and Raman-spectroscopy, particle size analysis, NMR spectroscopy, specimen preparation), structure of materials (structure – mechanical property relationships for metals, polymers and ceramics, phase transformations with associated strengthening effects, failure processes), advanced materials processing (manufacturing with metals, ceramics, polymers and composites and typical coating methods).

Semester 1 also includes the study of typical management systems which are needed to standardize and audit manufacturing processes and systems in Industry. This module also addresses regulatory affairs for the Biomedical Device Industry. Semester 2 involves further study of analytical techniques and modelling software used for materials development / analysis and affords students exposure to Research challenges in Materials Science. Students choose one specialised elective in each Semester which covers the detailed materials science associated with Biomedical devices and how new materials are being developed which have therapeutic value.

During Semester 2 students choose and begin work on a 45 credit Biomedical Device Materials related research project supervised by highly published internationally recognised experts in Materials Science & Engineering. These projects involve the use of state of the art instrumentation at the University to acquire information on materials and processes suitable for publication in high impact journals or IP protection.

CAREERS

There are in excess of 250 medical technology companies in Ireland, exporting €7.9bn worth of product annually, making Ireland the second largest exporter of med tech devices in Europe and employing 25,000 people. Future forecasts by the IDA for the industry have identified the need for Materials related expertise in regenerative medicine and bioprocessing, The Irish Medical Devices Association states that “The   medical technology industry in Ireland is changing from being predominantly manufacturing to being more complex and driven by R&D” and this new M. Sc. programme is designed to empower individuals to create, and participate in, such change.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

Applicants for a Master’s programme must normally have a first or second class Level 8 honours degree (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent) in a physical science or engineering subject(s) or equivalent prior learning that is recognised by the University as meeting this requirement. Applicants must also satisfy the English Language Requirements of the University. The University reserves the right to shortlist and interview applicants as deemed necessary.

Master Of Science (MSc) Advanced Engineering Materials

University of Limerick - M.Sc ADVANCED ENGINEERING MATERIALS

INTRODUCTION

This programme is designed to produce Masters graduates who have an in-depth knowledge of instrumentation involved in Materials analysis and characterisation together with a detailed knowledge of Materials Science, Materials Processing, and Surface Technology. The specialist modules will allow students to become fully briefed in the material science and engineering associated with high strength materials used in the aero-industry or with techniques for materials and coatings selection design, together with the materials selection methods typically employed by engineering consultants. From this knowledge base, graduates could expect to work in many manufacturing sectors or consultancy or, to continue their education to PhD level.

OBJECTIVES

The objectives of the programme are:

  • To provide science, engineering and technology graduates with a competitive edge for a career in high technology manufacturing industries
  • To provide graduates with analytical skills and knowledge which prepare them for careers in manufacturing, R & D or product / process design
  • To develop graduates with excellence in Materials Science and Engineering capability to underpin National and International Industrial development

Semester 2 involves further study of analytical techniques and modelling software used for materials development / analysis and affords students exposure to Research challenges in Materials Science.

Students choose one elective covering the detailed materials science / engineering associated with  composite materials or aerospace metallic materials, and one elective in Semester 2 from either materials selection and design (interaction between material properties and engineering design criteria, in designing components and products for manufacture, computer aided materials selection) or surface degradation and protection (coatings for improved oxidation, corrosion and wear resistance).

During Semester 2 students choose and begin work on a 45 credit research project supervised by world class researchers in Materials Science & Engineering. These projects involve the use of state of the art instrumentation at the University to acquire information on materials and processes suitable for high impact publications or IP protection.

CAREERS

Graduates will typically pursue careers in manufacturing in metallurgical, ceramic, polymer and composite technologies related to a diverse range of manufacturing sectors e.g. aerospace components and engines (including repair), chemical processing and process plant, power generation plant and many other manufacturing Industries. M.Sc. graduates in Advanced Engineering Materials would also be expected to gain employment in consultancy, research and development, product and process development or quality control and assurance.

ENTRANCE REQUIREMENTS

Applicants for a Master’s programme must normally have a first or second class Level 8 honours degree (NFQ or other internationally recognised equivalent) in a related physical science or engineering subject(s) or equivalent prior learning that is recognised by the University as meeting this requirement. Applicants must also satisfy the English Language Requirements of the University. The University reserves the right to shortlist and interview applicants as deemed necessary.
