Materials Science and Engineering Society


Join This Group

Welcome to MatSoc, the student-run society for the Materials Science and Engineering department!  We normally host a large variety of social events throughout the year, including an annual Freshers Black T-Shirt Social, Christmas Ceilidh, and Spring Ball! We will be holding as many of these as we can this year within the guidelines. We also run events with a more academic focus, including visits to places like the University's Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), and take part in outreach events like Science Alive!  MatSoc also has its very own 11-a-side football team (FCC FC) and netball team (Hadfield Honeybadgers)! And if that's not enough, members also get excellent discounts at West Street Live and Tiger Works! To keep up to date with all society events, make sure to follow us on: Facebook (@MatSocTUOS) Instagram (@matsoc.uos) and Twitter (@MatSocTUOS). Also, feel free to contact us with any questions, queries or suggestions you may have at We hope to see you at one of our events very soon!



All of our clubs and societies are run by a committee.

A committee is a team of people that lead, organise and publicise a group within your Students' Union.

It can be really rewarding as well as being a great way to gain experience and invaluable skills for your future career.
