Postgraduate study


For nearly 50 years materials science and engineering has been a core strength at Loughborough University and we have a longstanding international reputation for our materials teaching and research.

Our facilities

Our extensive range of first-class facilities are designed to help you throughout your studies and fully-equip you for your future endeavours.

We have excellent facilities which include a newly refurbished and extended process and pilot area, and the Loughborough Materials Characterisation Centre (LMCC) which, with its state of-the-art equipment, is one of the best suites of its kind in Europe.

The Centre supports our research and teaching activities developing understanding of the interactions of structure and properties with processing and product performance.

You will also benefit from our superb facilities on campus, which includes stunning gardens and open spaces, alongside a rich variety of shops. With comprehensive support systems for our postgraduate community, it is easy to see why Loughborough is consistently ranked as a top university for student experience.
