Program overview

The first year of the program lays a strong foundation in mathematics, chemistry and physics. Second year moves deeper into materials science through courses in fundamental properties and structures of materials as well as aspects of engineering design, application and selection of materials. In third and fourth year the study of materials properties and practical evaluation allows greater specialisation through technical and professional electives. Electives vary with the selected study plan and include Ceramics, Materials, Physical Metallurgy or Process Metallurgy. Fourth year students have the opportunity to concentrate on a research project sharpening experimental and analytical skills. The program includes lectures, practical hands-on laboratory work, research and design projects. It also includes components of professional communication, management aspects of business and industrial training.
