Materials Engineering involves investigating the relationships that exist between the structures and properties of materials. Based on these structure-property correlations, a Materials Engineer will be able to design or engineer the structure of a material to produce a predetermined set of properties. Ultimately the role of a Materials Engineer is called upon to create new products or systems using existing materials and/or to develop techniques for processing materials.
Materials Engineering is a broad-based engineering programme that emphas strong fundamentals in Mathematics and Engineering principles.
This programme prepares graduates for industry specific needs through specialization elective packages offered in the final year, as well as lifelong learning and independent study skills through design courses, final year projects and adjunct lecture series.
Students will be exposed to team-based and practical problem solving through Engineering Team Project (ETP), Final Year Projects (FYP I&II), Engineering Design Projects (MECP I & II) and our unique 7-month Student Industrial Internship Programme (SIT & SIP).
Students of this programme will also be aware of environmental, social, political, ethical and economic constraints through humanities, management and social science electives.
In addition to the above courses, students may further develop their engineering knowledge through one of the Core Specializations as follows:Advanced Computational and Modelling of Materials Degradation and Failure of Materials
