Materials Engineering students gain a full understanding of materials processing, properties and design. Students learn materials fundamentals and build on the foundation of math, chemistry and physics. They also develop knowledge in metals, ceramics, polymers and composites and gain a better understanding of how they apply to real-world situations.
Optional Specializations in Materials Engineering:
Concentrates on biomedical equipment, physiology/anatomy, clinical and industrial biomedical engineering, biomaterials and nanofibre technology
Minerals and Metals Extraction
Focuses on physical mineral processes, reactor design, process mineralogy, hydrometallurgy and flotation.
Manufacturing and Performance
Emphasizes microstructural analysis, failure of materials, microstructure evolution, electronic materials and composite materials.
