Materials are at the forefront of new technologies in medicine and dentistry, both in preventative and restorative treatment. This programme features joint teaching within the School of Engineering and Materials Science and the Institute of Dentistry, bringing together expertise in the two schools to offer you a fresh perspective on opportunities that are available in the field.
This programme will:
- Equip you with a deep understanding of the field of dental materials and the knowledge necessary to participate in research, or product development.
- Place special emphasis on materials-structure correlations in the context of both clinical and non-clinical applications.
- Provide an introduction to materials science, focusing on the major classes of materials used in dentistry including polymers, metals, ceramics and composites.
- Provide up-to-date information on dental materials currently used in clinical dentistry.
