Materials Science and Engineering

Master's in materials science

Mastering Matter

The Master in Materials Science and Engineering integrates fundamental knowledge of materials synthesis and processing, materials microstructure and materials properties of polymers, ceramics, metals and alloys, and composites. This knowledge is then used to improve the performance of engineered products and to design unique new materials for next-generation applications, such as optical and electronic materials and biomaterials with emphasis on sustainable development.

Program's Objectives

This Master’s program provides students with deep scientific and technical knowledge that will allow them to grasp the structure of matter down to the atomic scale. Students will understand the relationship between microstructure and the structural and functional properties of materials and master the design, transformation and fabrication of materials for cutting-edge technological applications.

A Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering is the gateway to a career in a wide variety of industries ranging from the production of materials to the manufacturing of finished products such as watches, sports equipment, aeronautics, foods, metallurgy, automobiles, electronics and multimedia. It also provides ideal training for the innovative application of advanced materials in areas such as bio- and nanotechnology as well as a strong foundation for those who wish to pursue a PhD degree in Materials Science or a related field.
