Materials Science and Engineering

Materials Science and Engineering

The Materials Science and Engineering specialisation will provide you with a greater understanding of the relationship between properties of materials and their relationship to engineering design.

This specialisation is designed to cover many important concepts related to this field, including mechanical properties, fracture and fatigue mechanics, composite materials, ceramics and glasses, as well as structure-property relationships and the selection of materials.
