The great importance of materials engineering lies in the development of new processes and materials required for advanced industries. Materials engineers chooses are involved in various engineering applications; in R&D of materials from the nuclear through the molecular levels, researches, processes development, and implementation, 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, and methods of characterizing material.
The first-tier studies focus 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.
The Material Science and Engineering program aims to train graduates to integrate and lead in research and development of materials and their characterization and uses for high-technology industries – from semi-conductor manufacturing, through materials for biological applications. Students will conduct senior projects in material science, in cooperation with industry and will be exposed to advanced research methods in materials science and engineering.
