Metallurgical and Materials Engineering is an interdisciplinary department dealing with the producing, shaping, and characterizing of materials and studies the relationship between physical properties and internal structure of materials at an atomic and molecular scale. Our department is concerned with the production, improvement, structure, and properties of materials by taking into consideration the relationship in a triangle of production-structure-property.
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering provides the development of high-performance materials such as ceramics, polymers, metals, and their alloys which are used in the fields of a wide range of industries including construction, automotive, defense, electronics, energy, communication, space, and aviation, medicine, and dentistry.
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department started to accept undergraduate students in the academic year of 2013 – 2014. Currently, there are 2 professors, 1 associate professor, 2 assistant professors, and 4 research assistants in our department. In the first year, the undergraduate curriculum offers a core program that builds on basic courses consisting of physics, chemistry, mathematics, and basic sciences providing students with a background for professional courses providing job opportunities in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in the subsequent years. These courses consist of the production of iron-steel and nonferrous metals, powder metallurgy, physical metallurgy, heat treatments, production and characterization techniques of alloys and materials.
In addition to the basic engineering courses, the department offers elective courses allowing students to be specialized in various topics such as extractive metallurgy, nanomaterials, composites, ceramics, energy, electronics, and biomedical materials. In the senior year, students are required to have successful completion of a summer internship in the industry before graduation, in addition, students are required to take part in a graduation project and make an oral presentation.
