BSc in Materials Engineering
College: College of Engineering
Duration: 4 Years
Description: Materials engineering is an advanced area, which is entering many varied industries at a fast pace. The great importance of materials engineering lies in the development of new processes and materials required for advanced industries.
The materials engineer chooses materials suitable for various engineering applications; is involved in R&D of materials from the nuclear through the molecular levels; researches, develops and implements processes, as well as product quality and reliability assurance; improves material properties; investigates product failure; applies advanced analytic methods; and manages technology.
Specialization areas include metallurgy and metallic materials; electronic materials; ceramic materials; polymers and plastic materials; complex materials; environmental protection of materials; methods of characterizing materials.
This program ensures the qualification of materials engineers prepared for employment in both R&D and industrial positions. The first study tier focuses on basic science courses (mathematics, physics, chemistry and computer science), along with introductory courses in materials engineering. The second tier includes advanced courses, in which students acquire a sound scientific basis in the main areas of materials engineering, and can then specialize in some of the fields mentioned above.
