Programme Learning Outcomes
Materials Science & Engineering Department
Vision: To be a premier department providing quality education and leadership in research, development, and application of technology and knowledge in the MSE domain.
Mission: We provide high-quality "Science-driven, Application-oriented" education & research programmes in advanced materials for discovery and implementation of new technologies.
The curriculum is designed with the following educational programme objectives:
- 1. To prepare our graduates for fulfilling engineering careers or further graduate research programmes by providing a quality, in depth, education in materials science and engineering that instils an appreciation of the ability to achieve goals through life-long learning.
- 2. To equip our graduates with the necessary foundation in basic sciences and engineering principles that underpin the knowledge and implementation of material structure, processing, properties and performance of all classes of materials used in engineering systems.
- 3. To prepare our graduates for a wide range of
materials-related career opportunities by providing a flexible curriculum allowing students to expand their knowledge in specialized areas at the forefront of materials development.
- 4. To prepare our graduates for professional practice through comprehensive hands-on laboratory experiences, team work and the development of communication skills.
- 5. To prepare our graduates to solve materials selection and design problems over all length scales based on a thorough understanding of the scientific and engineering principles underlying the major elements of the field.
- 6. To instil in our graduates the importance of their professional, ethical and moral responsibilities by providing opportunities to learn and grow as individuals and to contribute to society.
