Program Description

I. Introduction

The major of Materials Science and Engineering is a discipline, which systematically studies fundamental theories and experiment skills for materials science and engineering as well as applies these knowledge/abilities for materials’ syntheses, preparation, structure characterization/evaluation, and performance controlling in various broad fields based on the principles of materials science, chemistry,and physics. Materials Science and Engineering major is an integrated discipline for application science closely related to engineering technology.

Materials are the bases for human survival and development. In 1970s, people viewed information, materials and energy as the mainstay of social civilization. In 1980s, with the rise of high technologies, materials science, information technology, and biotechnology were listed as important symbols of new technology revolution. Nowadays, materials have become important parts of the national economy, national defense and people's livelihood.

II. Objectives and Learning Outcomes

Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) will cultivate high-quality science and technology talents with firm theory knowledge of Materials Science and Engineering, abilities of mastering frontier materials’ R&D and characterization technology, and capabilities of utilizing English and computer technology very well for high-tech R&D in interdisciplinary fields. These trained students possess not only the capability for researching in their disciplines and related fields, for designing and developing new materials, for teaching and managing, but also for practice innovation, cooperation, and leadership. These graduates can not only engage in conventional material industrial production, new materials creation, and development of new processes and technologies, but also continue their postgraduate studies in Materials Science and Engineering and serve in the research, development and management in top-ranked corporations, scientific research institutes, colleges, and government.
