Our graduates contribute to the design, manufacturing, maintenance, evaluation, quality assurance, performance and safety enhancement of the composing materials, engineering components, devices, structures and processing plants.

Start Your Career Here

Materials Science and Engineering is an exciting and fascinating subject. Many of the novel materials invented in the past few decades have substantially influenced and dramatically changed the way we live. If you imagine a world without silicon electronics or engineering plastics, you will realise the obvious contribution of materials scientists and engineers in the history of mankind.

Materials Science and Engineering is essential to almost all industrial sectors. Upon graduation, you will be able to work in various areas such as electronics, toys, plastics, metals, ceramics and construction industries and testing laboratories. You may also be employed as a materials engineer, quality control engineer, production engineer, laboratory manager, R&D engineer or engineering salesperson for equipment, machinery and materials.

Our major provides professional training that equips students with the ability to understand engineering and scientific information, and to analyse complex engineering problems using systematic and scientific reasoning. Some of our recent graduates have applied their strengths in logical, technical and critical analysis to pursue successful careers in fields such as finance and business.

What You Will Be Studying

When you begin your studies, you will be equipped with fundamental knowledge such as engineering mathematics, computing, physical science, engineering drawing and communication skills. These are the necessary foundations for your progression to materials science and engineering study. You will build on these foundations with more in-depth study of the thermodynamics and kinetics of materials processing.

With a strong physical sciences background, you will then take courses related to the properties of conventional and advanced engineering materials, materials testing and examination techniques and the processing of various modern and advanced materials (such as polymers, composites, ceramics and electronic materials). Stress analysis, deformation and fracture of various materials for engineering applications will also be covered.

You need to plan for your career by choosing electives from a wide range of courses such as Environmental Degradation, Microelectronic Materials, Nanocomposite Materials, Advanced Thin Film, Materials Science Modelling, Failure Analysis, Building Materials, Biomedical Materials, Electronic Packaging, Energy Materials, Nanotechnology and Electroceramics.

Workshop training and design laboratory group project courses will allow you to gain hands-on experience in a simulated industrial environment. Selected students will also join established companies for internship training under the guidance of academic staff during the summer vacation.

Every student is required to work independently on a final year project spanning two semesters before graduation. This project is an independent investigation of a materials science and engineering problem. You might find something new and publish a paper in an international journal together with your supervisor! These integrated learning activities in simulated and real industrial environments are essential to you in becoming a professional engineer upon graduation.
