General Information on Undergraduate Program

The Department of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering is concerned with the generation and application of knowledge on engineering materials. It comprises such aspects as the extraction and refining processes, synthesis and processing of materials, factors affecting the internal structure of solids, methods of altering the structure and properties of materials and factors affecting the materials behaviour in service. Materials are crucial in all other fields of engineering, since innovations in materials often lead to improvements in design or sometimes to the emergence of altogether new products. In short, most fields of work or study have a bit of metallurgy and materials in them. The undergraduate curriculum comprises a core program that emphasises principles basic to all these classes of materials. It builds upon courses on physics, chemistry and certain aspects of solid mechanics.
