Module content and teaching

Principal aims

Materials and Polymers are used in all applications from functional to structural applications. They turn molecules into useful devices and items, or are extended arrays of connected atoms that have unique properties as solids. This module will give students an appreciation of how materials can be made, how they need to be characterised and how macroscopic properties can be designed for use in energy, healthcare, electronics, personal care and other applications.

Principal learning outcomes

Students should have a conceptual understanding of and be familiar with fundamental principles and approaches to solid-state materials, characterisation methods, and polymer chemistry, as laid out in the syllabus.
