Materials Science and Engineering

One of the major issues of the researches is to obtain a basic knowledge for educating sophisticated functions of materials. For this purpose, this course executes the education and researches for acquiring the basic knowledge on the formation mechanism of material functions and developing ability for its applications. The main targets of this course are metals, organic and inorganic materials, ceramics, and structural materials in nano, meso and macro scales.
