Social responsibility pervades many aspects of the work in the Department of Materials, including teaching, the student experience, research, the environment and outreach.
We have some very exciting initiatives and our work falls under the five key areas of The University of Manchester's social responsibility strategy.
Our staff and students engage with the general public and local schools through various demonstrations, lectures and exhibitions.
We support the University's programme in environmental sustainability in various ways, including better efficiency and reducing waste.
Our research is diverse but specifically addresses societal problems such as energy sustainability, transport, biomedical implants and tissue regeneration.
In our department, diversity is celebrated, and all staff and students are encouraged to bring their whole selves to work and study.”
We aim to produce graduates promoting care and consideration for the environment when applying research methods.
