About Department


The Department of Materials Engineering was founded in 1977 to train highly qualified engineers for the metallurgical industries. Currently with 27 academic members and over 650 students is one of the best and most prestigious Materials Engineering Departments nationwide.

The Department offers graduate and undergraduate degree programs leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.) in Extractive Metallurgy and Industrial Metallurgy, the degree of Master of Science (M.Sc.) in Identification and Selection of Materials, Extractive Metallurgy, Casting and Corrosion and Protection of Materials and the degree of PhD in Materials Engineering and Biomaterials.

The students in the department follow essential program of “core” subjects in form of lectures and laboratory exercises on the relation between structures and properties of materials, techniques available for characterization and testing, quality control operations, materials selection, corrosion, and surface treatment. Also, elective courses can be chosen from an extensive range to suit particular interests and abilities.

The Department of Materials Engineering has over 15 Educational and Research Laboratories (such as Mechanical Metallurgy Lab., Extractive Metallurgy Lab., Solidification and Casting Lab., Molding Materials Lab., Metallography and Electron Microscopy Lab., Heat Treatment Lab., Corrosion Lab., Ceramics Lab., Refractories Lab., and Analytical Chemistry Lab.) employing modern facilities and equipment’s.

Combine these advantages with great employment opportunities after graduation; you have every reason to join us!
