Welcome to Materials Science & Engineering
Degree programs in:
The societal sustainability demands that the engineers of today take on the stewardship of the earth, energy and environment. As the enabler of all technologies, materials science and engineering holds the key in this journey to sustained growth. Material scientists and engineers possess the knowledge to design, develop, manufacture and use advanced materials for judicious exploration of natural resources, for harnessing conventional and renewable energy, for performance enhancement of all manufactured engineering products - from airplanes to automobiles and from buildings to bridges. Materials engineer is also responsible for developing materials that are environment friendly. Therefore, the paradigm of synthesis-processing-structure-properties-performance shall be pervasive in all aspects of education at the Petroleum Institute, where you will have two degree options: Metallurgical Science & Engineering and Polymer Science & Engineering. Materials Science and Engineering is the field that deals with broad material classifications of metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, which have functional applications as structural, electronic, magnetic, photonic, optical, bio-, nano-, semiconductor and superconductor materials.
At the Petroleum Institute, students will take basic science courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry along with courses in communication and social sciences before the two and a half years of engineering science courses in thermodynamics, kinetics, transport, materials extraction and synthesis, materials structure and characterization, materials processing and forming, materials selection and application in addition to courses in corrosion and surface engineering. Students will also have the opportunity to learn about, materials economics, statistical process control, welding metallurgy and materials recycling and sustainability. Students will be prepared for challenging placement opportunities in metallurgical and polymer sciences.
Owing to the vast diversity in areas of knowledge and education, materials science and engineering graduates can be employed in industries that include automotive, manufacturing, primary metals, ceramics, aerospace, R&D, microelectronics, biomedicine, polymers and plastics, oil and gas, etc. Students are prepared for advanced studies in not only materials science but also medicine, law and management.
