Why Study Materials Science and Metallurgy?
Evolution and advancement of human civilization have always been prompted by the development of new materials. At each and every stages of human development any kind of application has been elevated only by pursuing relentless effort to develop and upgrade the material. When a material seemed to have given the best of it, finding the next generation of material has always been the biggest concern for the scientists and engineers. Following this never-ending relentless pursuit of the best material, the world now has entered into the age of science and technology where materials are now being handled at nano-scale level which has laid the ground for new possibilities for future.
The field Materials and Metallurgical Engineering is related to the science and engineering that involves the discovery and design of materials, with an emphasis on solids.
Our world is a materials world. We name civilisation eras by the materials that define them. Think what will happen to our current civilisation if I vanish by magic all the three big S’s (i.e., steels, silicon and soil) from the world!
New materials have been among the greatest achievements of every age and they have been central to the growth, prosperity, security, and quality of life of humans since the beginning of history. It is always new materials that open the door to new technologies, whether they are in civil, chemical, construction, nuclear, aeronautical, agricultural, mechanical, biomedical or electrical engineering.
Materials scientists and engineers are at the very centre of imagining and delivering progress and fulfilling both our basic needs and the most exotic dreams….
The department offers BSc in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering degree to its undergraduate students. The courses taught under this degree can be found at the right sidebar.
The course system and evaluation system are explained below.
From the academic session of 1990-91 the undergraduate curricula at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology is based on the Course System. The rules and regulations of the new system was duly published by the Registry Office in a booklet entitled “Report of the Committee for Framing Recommendations for Implementation and Administration of Course System” which is revised and approved in the meeting of the Academic Council held on 7th and 13th September 1993. Only the relevant sections of the report are included in this information booklet so that students can have a clear understanding about the course system. More
The department offers MSc in MME and MSc in Materials Science degress for students having Materials Science background and Physical Science background respectively.
Click this link to obtain information about MSc in MME admission requirements and Eligibility criteria. In 2004, the department introduced the Masters of Philosophy in Materials Science, abbreviated as M.Phil. (Mat. Sc.), programme to students with general science and non-engineering backgrounds. This is an opportunity for these students to have a postgraduate degree in materials science from Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET), a leading university of Bangladesh for education and research in science and engineering.
