PGDip - Materials and Processing as a subject
Postgraduate diplomas provide the opportunity for continuing professional development in the same area as an original degree. A postgraduate diploma can often lead to a masters degree.
Efficiently converting the world’s raw materials and commodity goods into products is important to the global economy. To do this, we need to understand the properties of materials as diverse as food, wood, metals, plastics and fuel.
