Materials at Swansea ranked 1st in the UK for student satisfaction, according to the latest National Student Survey (NSS). We are one of the UK’s leading centres for materials teaching and research with funding from prestigious organisations including Rolls-Royce, Airbus and Tata Steel. As a student on the BEng Materials Science and Engineering (with a Year in Industry) course, you will receive excellent teaching driven by world-class research and strong links with industry.
The entry requirements for the BEng Materials Science and Engineering (with a Year in Industry) degree are:
BBB at A level
Recommended subjects include:
BBB is our standard offer for students who are studying 3 A levels, but we recognise the individual nature of each application and so the standard offer should be viewed only as a guide. In some circumstances we may make different offers or points offers where appropriate e.g. ‘300 UCAS points’.
Or 32 at IB (preferably to include good marks at HL Mathematics).
Students studying for BTEC qualifications require DDD - DDM in BTEC plus grade B in Chemistry, Physics or Mathematics A level. Students not studying A levels alongside their BTEC qualification, require D*DD - DDD with D in ‘Mathematics for Technicians’, plus minimum GCSE grades of B in Mathematics and 2 x B grades in Science/Engineering/Manufacturing . Studying ‘Further Mathematics for Technicians’ is highly recommended.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.
If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.
Career destinations of some of our recent graduates include:
Design Engineer with MBA Polymers Ltd
Materials Engineer with Airbus
Applications Engineer with Solent & Pratt
Materials Engineer with Rolls-Royce
Graduate Engineer with Chevron
Operational Specialist with Tata
In addition, about 40% of our graduates go on to postgraduate study, normally on funded industry-collaborative places.
The technical content of the BEng Materials Science and Engineering (with a Year in Industry) degree covers the fundamental science of materials, the links between structure, processing and properties and engineering design of materials.
Hands-on experience includes laboratory investigations using state-of-the-art equipment and computer applications including materials modelling.
In the final year research project, you will gain further experience in project management, information review and the use of advanced research equipment such as electron microscopy or X-Ray tomography.
