Materials science and engineering, as an interdisciplinary field of study, has established a broad link between physics, chemistry, mechanics and mathematics. Therefore, materials science includes many specialties from basic fields such as steelmaking, materials extraction to new fields such as superconductors, nano and biomaterials.
Considering that, the fundamental aim of materials science and engineering is materials selection ensuring required functions and performance of products, which are manufactured out of them. Therefore, the focus of materials and metallurgy department is to develop research in the field of fabrication, mechanical, analytical and chemical characterization of different kinds of materials such as super-alloys, polymers, different types of composites, porous structures.
Students of this group will get acquainted with the research method to carry out their final project by passing a seminar and a workshop, entitled” an introduction to research methods”. The MSc students of materials and metallurgy department can research in the field of corrosion, reverse engineering of industrial parts, failure analysis, severe plastic deformation, high temperature alloys, composites, layered and functionally graded structures.
