Department of Materials And Metallurgical Engineering

Metallurgical Engineering provides the opportunity for the study, design, implementation, and improvement of processes regarding the transformation of mineral resources and metals into useful products. Metallurgical engineers’ job is to fulfill the mineral and metal product needs of the Society. They are trying their best to do their job in a nature-friendly approach by which they minimize waste, maximize energy efficiency, and facilitate recycling.

The Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy has a large and vigorous research school, with about 100 research fellows, postdoctoral scientists and visiting scientists, and more than 140 research students studying for the PhD degree. The Department of Materials Science & Metallurgy has a leading role in research and teaching regarding materials science. With an academic staff of over 30, including Research Fellows, the Department's research covers all major areas of the subject, and this breadth is reflected in the scope of our four-year undergraduate course

The emphasis in undergraduate teaching, which was established in 1993, is on the principles applicable to the whole range of engineering materials such as metals, composites, ceramics, polymers, and solid state device materials. The lecture courses are presented along with laboratory experiments, applied projects, practical classes and supervisions. We try to maintain contact with the industry. After finishing 4 years studies undergraduate students are prepared to work in industry sectors or run their own jobs.

Students are admitted in the Masters’ degree at the Department of Material Science and Metallurgy since 2003. The aim of this program is to educate students advanced subjects in Metallurgy. Students in this program can study in one of the following majors (educational concentrations): Materials Section; Metal Corrosion and Protection, Metal Extraction

In the doctoral program, which was established in 2008, candidates study specialized subjects on Material and Metallurgy.
