Almost every adult in the developed world benefits from dental materials. The pace of innovation in this field is extremely rapid, especially where technologies such as tissue engineering are involved.

This non-clinical course, run jointly with the Faculty of Engineering, gives you a comprehensive education in basic materials science and the use of materials in dentistry and surgery.

You’ll be taught by some of the leading academics in the fields of bio and dental materials science, tissue engineering, materials characterisation and biomedical engineering.

You will also learn the principles of research and different techniques for evaluating dental materials and related health technologies.

You’re assessed on essays, presentations, an exam and a research dissertation.
