Bachelor of Engineering (Materials Science and Engineering)

Innovations in materials science are evident everywhere in our modern society. From the steel and concrete that build our homes, to the semiconductor nanotechnology that connects us and the biomedical implants that save our lives. Nearly all materials that you see and interact with have been designed by someone, and optimized to give them exactly the properties that are needed for their intended function. New materials are being developed all the time, and whole civilizations have progressed thanks to this: we advanced from the stone age to the bronze, iron, and silicon ages.

Many challenges we face in the near-future will not be solved without new and better materials. We will need materials that can better store energy in batteries, materials for more efficient energy generation in solar cells, materials that can keep us healthy for longer, or materials that simply allow us to marvel in our daily lives: beautiful displays, powerful electronic devices, safe air travel, and the list goes on and on.

Materials Science and Engineering is a four-year undergraduate study that combines a solid foundation in solid-state physics and chemistry with practical aspects of materials design and engineering. Besidestheoretical training, experimental work is an important part of the MSE curriculum. After the foundational first years, you will be specializing for a future career in either research, as a practicing professional in industry, or for a career as technopreneur.
