What will I learn?

This field of study emphasises the application of material engineering principles and concepts for the design and development of materials for industrial application. Investigation on the chemical, physical and mechanical properties of materials is vital in order to understand how a material can be used and why it could fail. The materials studied include polymer, metal, ceramic, composite and other emerging materials. Also studied are advanced materials developed based on nanotechnology, material synthesis and characterisation, tribology, surface science and catalysis, failure design, forensic materials engineering, and new processing technologies, which may lead to future applications in the fields of aerospace, automotives, electronics, coatings, sensors, actuators, drug delivery, metallurgy, crystallography, metallography and drilling fluid.
