Engineering Course

( UR6527001)  Bachelor of Materials Engineering with Honours
Programme Summary

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.



  • PO1

    Knowledge

    Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering fundamentals and an engineering specialisation to defined and applied engineering procedures, processes, systems or methodologies.


    PO2

    Problem Analysis

    Identify, formulate, research literature and analyse broadly-defined engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using analytical tools appropriate to their discipline or area of specialization.


    PO3

    Design/ Development of Solutions
