Division of Materials Science and Engineering
In today’s advanced industrial society, the development of materials is essential industrial advancement, and is therefore equivalent to the competitive power of a nation. Materials used in industries include ceramics, metals, high molecules, and composites, and the advancement of all industries in modern society such as machine, automobile, aerospace, ship building, electronics, and semiconductors depends on the features and characteristics of the materials applied in their respective fields.
The Department of Materials & Metallurgical Engineering offers basic knowledge and intensive major courses required for manufacturing, processing, development, and application of industrial materials including various composite materials, functional materials, and nano materials as well as metal materials. It cultivates creative technical manpower to live up to the knowledge-based industrial society of the 21st century.
The Department of Advanced Materials Engineering aims to cultivate knowledge for understanding the characteristics of advanced materials by adopting the principles of science into engineering, and developing advanced materials based on such understanding. Furthermore, it teaches students to build academic abilities to understand and apply properties of preexisting materials. The goal is to promote the cultivation of technicians of advanced materials who can creatively research and develop advanced materials that can meet the demands of advanced science by learning theories on structure, property, and analysis based on basic theories of metals, inorganic matters, and high molecules, and conducting experiments based on them.
