Hi everyone!
I am trying to find out more about what a Material Science degree is as there isn't much info online.
So if anyone is doing Material Science can you please let me know what sort of things you cover and career prospects?
Thanks

They can vary a fair bit, depending if they focus more on the engineering side or the science side There is a fair bit of overlapping core content though. The mechanics of materials and thermal properties of materials are pretty universally covered, and usually at least some crystallography will be covered even in an engineering focused course. Although I suppose both sides will consider phase diagrams, I feel like they might be more of a focus for engineering courses in terms of certain "key" materials (the iron-carbon phase diagram for example you'll probably become very familiar with in more engineering oriented courses!).

For "science" oriented courses, or some engineering focused courses that are more focused on electronic engineering applications, the electronic and optical properties of materials (including semiconductor properties) will be covered, and you might do some more formal statistical mechanics and solid state physics. On engineering focused courses there is often more relating to material failure/fracture mechanics and materials selection for engineering purposes, which often relates to aspects of manufacturing engineering (e.g. production of steels, how annealing/cold rolling/etc work).
