MatSoc is a student run society set up to support its members in the study of materials science through industrial visits, speaker events, and socials.
MatSoc organises between one and two industrial visits per term. Previous industrial visits have included trips to P2i, Mini, and Element Six. Industrial visits are an essential part of the Materials Science degree at Oxford, and Industrial Visit Reports contribute to Finals grades.
Speaker events allow students to hear from professionals in the industry and ask questions of interest. Events are often followed by a lunch, giving students the opportunity to network.
MatSoc hosts termly events, including the annual Christmas Dinner. This gives students the chance to socialise between years and colleges, and get to know each other in an informal setting.
