The Master of Materials Science and Engineering offers students the opportunity to participate in both coursework and research. Using state-of-the-art infrastructure available at the world-renowned Global Innovative Centre for Advanced Nanomaterials (GICAN) at the University of Newcastle, students will undertake research related to the design and discovery of new materials, such as advanced materials, nanomaterials, functional materials, biomaterials, drug carriers, photovoltaics, soft materials and useful metal alloys.
This program will develop and train the next generation of material scientists and engineers, not only for Australia, but also as a significant source of intellectual talent for the global materials economy.
Students will gain an understanding of how the processing of a material influences its structure, properties and performance. They will learn to apply this knowledge to address challenging issues in a variety of fields, including education, vehicles, cosmetics, medicine, pharmacy, petroleum, steel, electronics, information technology, energy and environmental technologies, forensic engineering, and space science.
