Student Testimonials

Read about why UCL Institute for Materials Discovery (IMD) is fantastic place to study Advanced Materials Science.

I was able to specialise in batteries, which involves materials science, thanks to this MSc course at UCL, a highly regarded university. I entered with very little battery expertise but the teaching team gave me good support, and I was exposed to the most recent advancements in the materials science world. The curriculum provided me with a wide knowledge of materials science whilst letting me specialise in Li-ion batteries for my research. My time at UCL was valuable and I still keep in touch with my supervisor and my coursemates sharing helpful insights. Muhammad Hakeem Bin Noor Azleen  Advanced Materials Science (Energy Storage) MSc, 2021/22
What drew me to study at UCL in this department was the ability to specialise in a particular research area of materials science, from which there are many to choose from here. Having a diverse and multicultural study environment with students and academics from different backgrounds provides the grounding for novel approaches and collaboration. I enjoyed the lecture content and found it relevant and interesting, examining underlying principles to tackle real world problems. Having dedicated lab time during the summer provided a chance to put into practice the knowledge learnt throughout the course. The level of support I received throughout the course was excellent and beneficial to my growth, both academically and professionally. I credit my study at UCL IMD to gaining the specific skills needed for my current graduate job. Lauren Levine Advanced Materials Science MSc, 2021/22
