Metallurgical and Materials Engineering is an interdiciplinary department dealing with the producing, shaping and characterizing of materials and studies the relationship between physical properties and internal structure of materials at atomic and molecular scale. Our department concerns with production, improvement, structure and properties of materials by taking into consideration the relationship in triangle of production-structure-property.
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering provides the development of high performance materials such as ceramics, polimers, metals and their alloys which are used in the fields of a wide range of industries including construction, automotive, defense, electronics, energy, communication, space and aviation, medicine and dentistry.
Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department started to accept undergraduate students in the academic year of 2013 – 2014. Currently, there are 1 professor, 3 assistant professors and 3 research assistant in our department.
In the first year, the undergraduate curriculum offers a core program which builts on basic courses consisting of physics, chemistry, mathematics and basic sciences providing students with background for professional courses providing job opportunities in Metallurgical and Materials Engineering in the subsequent years. These courses consist of production of iron-steel and nonferrous metals, powder metallurgy, physical metallurgy, heat treatments, production and chracterization techniques of alloys and materials.
In addition to the basic engineering courses, the department offers elective courses allowing students to be specialized on various topics such as extractive metallurgy, nanomaterials, composites, ceramics, energy, electronics and biomedical materials. In the senior year, students are required to have a successful completion of summer internship in an industry before graduation, in addition to that students are required to take part in a graduation project and make an oral presentation.
The mission of our department offering fundamental knowledge of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering is to bring up engineers and scientists analitical thinking, having engineering skills and self-confidency in producing solutions and ideas in face of problems, having ability in evaluation and interpretation of data and findings, possessing outstanding professional features and background to pursue his/her profession in a wide range of industrial fields such as electronics, energy, nanotechnology and related outstanding research institutes at the national and international level.
Our vision is to become a department providing a sufficient grounding for a grduate to perform applied and theorical aspects in science and technology and to develop new technologies and materials and graduating students with improved abilities in questioning, investigating and life-long learning.
