Module overview

Materials science is a multidisciplinary area of activity that draws together strands of chemistry, physics and device design and engineering. It underpins the progress of developed and developing societies by providing the functional elements of devices and processes that lead to an improvement in the quality of life. New materials have the potential to deliver substantial environmental and medical benefits, but these are balanced by the environmental and health impact of the processes used in their production.
