Course Overview

An in-depth understanding on the nature of materials will make you a better engineer and designer because materials are considered as the heart of all branches of engineering. Nearly everything we use is made of materials and essentially every technology depends on breakthroughs in materials science and engineering, for instance, the development of semiconducting polymers is one of the contributing factors that has led to the production of light emitting diodes (LEDs). Any engineer can search for materials properties from a database or book, but ability to innovate and to incorporate materials safely in design required in-depth understanding on the materials structures, properties and processing techniques. This programme is specially designed to meet the vast demand of industries. Graduates are also equipped with the knowledge on manufacturing & management which are essential for their future employment.
