The Materials Science and Engineering program produces graduates who are capable of making immediate and significant contributions to a wide range of industrial and academic areas.
If asphalt could be designed so that it repaired itself, all that inconvenience and congestion that results from road repair would be a thing of the past. And if lighter materials could replace the current metals in auto bodies at an affordable price, far less fuel would be required to get from point A to point B. Those challenges are the sort that materials engineers and materials scientists are confronted with every day in their work.
Materials Science & Engineering is concerned with the development of materials that meet and exceed performance expectations for specific functions. It is also concerned with the manufacturing processes that convert basic materials into final engineered products and with the design of innovative new materials for the continuously evolving needs of society.
In the MSc Programme in Materials Science & Engineering you will study the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of materials and learn about production techniques and the selection of appropriate materials for a wide range of applications. The behaviour of materials under different conditions will be examined and you will learn how to assess their suitability in products and industrial processes. You will study the design of new material properties at nano and micro levels to suit applications on a macro scale. The programme focuses in particular on the design of new materials, including, for example, self-healing materials.
