What will I learn?

The Engineering Materials graduate program recognizes the close relationship between advanced level education and the advancement of knowledge, and is committed to excellence in graduate teaching and research.

An emphasis on fundamental scientific research and strong research collaborations with industry characterize our programs.


Research work carried out in the program can be classified under the general field of Materials Science and Engineering. This reflects the holistic approach that we have taken whereby we build upon a firm base of scientific research (materials science) and apply it to the development of new or improved materials and processes (materials engineering).

Research is concentrated on the following aspects of materials:

  • Physical
  • Mechanical
  • Tribological
  • Chemical
  • Processing
