By the end of this program, students will be able to:
- Perform detailed thermodynamic and kinetic calculations to refine processes that are both scientifically and technologically viable and cost-effective
- Select materials to maximize functionality and performance while minimizing costs using structural and functional materials derived from metals, ceramics and polymers
- Learn about advanced characterization techniques, modelling methods, measurement and data analytics.
- Gain application specific knowledge in additive manufacturing, ICME & process modelling, metal processing, mechanical metallurgy, materials characterization, surface engineering, energy storage and materials sustainability.
- Produce designs which are optimized for materials utilization and remanufacturing so that they can be made more quickly and at a lower cost
- Understand the relationship between materials processing, its structure and properties and the application for maximized performance.
