This program aims to produce engineers who are knowledgeable and highly skilled in the field of science and materials engineering which covers the field of study on the properties, testing, selection, processing and application of a material. Learning or studying in the field of material engineering starts from the analysis of the relationship between the structure (atomic) and properties of materials and then design / synthesis of materials based on the latest technological developments. In addition, material engineers play a role in creating a system and technique for the processing or production of a material / product as well as applying engineering theory to recycle used materials for the production of new materials.
Materials engineers are closely related to various types of key materials namely metals, polymers, rubber, ceramics, composites, electronics, bio-materials, semiconductors and superconductors. Materials engineering applies mathematical, scientific and engineering principles to understand the properties of materials in which the field forges the relationship between modern chemistry and physics, besides the engineering design and mathematical analysis.
PEO1 - Engineering graduates engaged in the field of materials engineering as demonstrated through career advancement.
PEO2 - Engineering graduates who are members and contribute to professional society.
PEO3 - Engineering graduates embracing in life-long learning or pursuing continuing education opportunities.
Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to defined and applied engineering procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.
Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse broadly-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to their discipline or area of specialization.
Design/ Development of Solutions
Design solutions for broadly-defined engineering problems, and to design systems, components or processes to meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, as well as cultural, societal, environmental and sustainability concerns.
Conduct investigations of broadly-defined problems; locate, search and select relevant data from codes, data bases and literature, design and conduct experiments to provide valid conclusions.
Modern Tools Usage
Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to broadly-defined engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
The Engineer and Society
Demonstrate understanding of the societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to engineering technology practice and solutions to broadly-defined engineering problems.
Environment and Sustainability
Understand the impact of engineering solutions of broadly-defined engineering problems in societal and environmental context and demonstrate knowledge of and need for sustainable development.
Understand and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering technology practice.
Individual and Team Work
Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse technical teams.
Communicate effectively on broadly-defined engineering activities with the engineering community and with society at large, by being able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation, make effective presentations, and give and receive clear instructions.
Recognize the need for, and have the ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in specialist technologies.
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering
Project Management and Finance
Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of engineering management principles and apply these to one’s own work, as a member and leader in a team and to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
