Department of Materials Science And Metallurgical Engineering


Engineers manufacture and process materials, design and construct components or structures using materials, select materials and analyze failures of materials. Responsible engineers are interested in improving the performance of the product being manufactured or designed. Our understanding of the relationship between structure and properties provides the basis for both our selection of existing materials and our development of new materials. Controlling microstructure has led to many new metal alloys and ceramics, while manipulating molecular structure has produced a vast spectrum of polymers. Materials engineers have juggled the structure of composite materials to produce unique properties. The environment present during processing and application also affects the behavior of a material often leading to its early failure.

Materials Science and Engineering is the scientific study of the interrelationships between processing, structure and properties of all classes of materials. Material Scientists study the formation of new compounds, phases and microstructure as well as the characterization of the properties. Materials engineering focuses on the synthesis of materials in useful quantities, and on the processing of component materials into engineering products.
