Course description

Dental Materials is multi-disciplinary and draws on all branches of science to combine them with manufacturing technology and design to overcome dental and maxillofacial (bones of the jaw and face) problems. Dental materials scientists study the processing, structure and properties of materials and the interactions of these materials with the tissues of the face and mouth. These programmes are an exciting part of our suite of medically related degrees. Both the BEng and MEng programmes contain specialist modules on dental materials, maxillofacial anatomy, biomaterials.

Modules

Year 1: Biological structures; dental materials 1; mathematics; properties of matter; engineering materials; mechanics; polymers; problem based learning. Year 2: Biomaterials; macillofacial anatomy; thermodynamics; deformation; structural characterisation; corrosion; financial management; problem based learning; polymer composites. Year 3: Medical engineering; dental materials 2; failure of solids; manufacturing; materials selection; research project; advanced ceramics.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
This course sits in a group of very specialised materials technology subjects, including furniture technology, engineering materials and gemmology - bear this in mind when you review the stats, as the employment prospects for each don't necessarily have much in common. If you want to find out more about specific job paths for your chosen subject area, it's a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates went on to do, or to have a look at university department websites.
