Delivered through the Global Innovative Centre for Advanced Nanomaterials (GICAN) and in collaboration with industry partner CSIRO, the new Master of Materials Science and Engineering will develop and train the next generation of material scientists and engineers to meet global demand.
The program was designed in consultation with leading organisations in the material science and engineering industry including Andromeda, Minotaur, Zinc oxide Australia (ZOA), SABIC (Saudi Arabia), Keliqiang Pte Ltd (China), and Baosteel (China).
With a focus on the fast-growing field of advanced nanomaterials, you’ll learn how the processing of a material influences its structure, properties and performance.
Graduate with the knowledge, skills, and industry connections needed to address key challenges in fields like education, vehicles, cosmetics, medicine, pharmacy, petroleum, steel, electronics, information technology, energy and environmental technologies, forensic engineering, and space science.
