The undergraduate Materials Science courses in Cambridge provide a firm grounding in the physical and chemical behaviour of a broad range of modern advanced materials.  For year-by-year overviews of the Materials Science courses in Cambridge follow the links on the left.

Materials Science in Cambridge is taught as part of the Natural Sciences Tripos (NST). This means that it is possible to do a degree specialising in Materials Science or just to take Materials Science courses in early years before specialising in a different field such as Physics or Chemistry. 

The undergraduate NST course aims and learning outcomes are available on the main University website:  Part IA | Part IB | Part II | Part III

The Department also hosts a number of courses/events for prospective undergraduate students seeking an insight into student life and the course at Cambridge.
