Overview

The Interdisciplinary field of materials science, also commonly termed materials science and engineering is the design and discovery of new materials, particularly solids. Materials engineering is a syncretic discipline of hybridizing metallurgy, ceramics, solid-state physics and chemistry. It is the first example of a new academic discipline emerging by fusion rather than fission. The experts in these fields try to come with ideas that will solve various issues related industrial area and its production. This field of engineering is an important aspect of modern Science and Technology.

UG/PG degrees 

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Materials Science and Engineering

Undergraduate students interested in this field can earn a bachelor of science in materials engineering. This program explores the mechanical, chemical, electrical, magnetic and optic properties and applications of various materials. This is a 4-year duration course opted mostly by the students who had completed their 12th.

  • Master’s Degree in Materials Science and Engineering

Graduate students of master degree are trained for innovation research. Most of the colleges offer this for 2 years. Students should score rank in GRE and have a bachelor degree to get admission in this course. Students can opt between thesis option or a comprehensive examination option to complete their master degree.

  • Doctorate in Materials Science and Engineering

The Terminal degree in materials engineering is the Doctor of Philosophy in Materials Science and engineering. It can also be completed without a master degree in 5 years. Interested students have to take GRE to get admission in this program. Proficiency in mathematics, engineering and physical sciences is necessary for the PhD student.

Exams required

Normally to study abroad, the student is needed to produce their IELTS score or TOEFL score. These are language test and are very important if one wishes to study abroad as it checks the language proficiency of the student.  hy

Course details

The very idea of materials engineering is based on discovering new ways to increase productivity by putting in less input. Many of the most pressing scientific problems humans currently face are due to limits of sources. To manage the sources and materials is very necessary in order to obtain essential energy from them which will benefit the humans. Materials Scientists understand the history of materials and how they influence the structure, thus the materials properties and performance.        Studying Materials Engineering and pursuing a career in this field is becoming popular among students across the world. The opportunities in this field have attracted many students to take admission in renowned colleges of the world to study materials engineering.

Salary details

The pay scale of the graduate’s who have taken a job after the material engineering is around $15, 50,400 which is quite a good salary. It can range from $50,000 to $ 200,000 for the geologists and it has become one of the hotspot for the graduates.
