The Higher Education Academy and the UK Centre for Materials Education have updated the national profile for the discipline of Materials Science in higher education.

The profile uses both publicly accessible data and information provided in extensive surveys of the Materials teaching community. It provides a definitive analysis of how, where and to whom Materials is taught at both undergraduate and taught-postgraduate levels in UK universities. It contains carefully sourced information about:

  • numbers, demographics and trends of students enrolled on, and graduating from, UK Materials programmes
  • the UK's provision of Materials programmes
  • the views and attitudes of academics teaching Materials
  • a summary of National Student Survey (NSS) results for Materials programmes
