Career prospects

Tata steel, Allseas, Stork, DAF, Bosch and Philips are just a few of the companies where graduates in Materials Science & Engineering have found positions. They are working in materials production, development and research in the industrial sector, or as materials experts in high level consultancy and management positions. Many work at steel and aluminium production firms. 

Others have more unusual positions – in archaeology, for example, of authenticating works of art on behalf of museums. Still others are employed in higher education and research, the polymer and recycling industries, patent offices, and industries involved in the development of high-tech micro devices for applications in biomedical prostheses.
