Materials Science & Engineering

 
 

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the degrees of Master of Applied Science, Master of Engineering, and Doctor of Philosophy. Graduate courses and research opportunities are offered to qualified students in a wide range of subjects.

Typical subjects in chemical metallurgy involve a study of the equilibria existing during the reduction of oxides with carbon and metals, properties of iron and steelmaking slags, the fundamental properties of fused salt solutions, fused salt electrolysis of reactive metals, kinetics of high-temperature reactions, mathematical modelling of metallurgical processes, process metallurgy, and hydrometallurgy.

Typical physical metallurgy and materials science subjects deal with the structure and properties of metallic, ceramic, and polymeric materials in such fields as plastic deformation, surface properties, electron microscopy, biomaterials, nuclear materials, metal-matrix composites (MMCs), metallic glasses, corrosion, fatigue, welding and bonding, phase transformations and solidification. These studies are all related to the general problem of understanding structure-property-processing relationships in materials.

​​​​​​​Research Stream Program Funding Information​

Base Funding Amount -

Graduate units determine a base funding amount for doctoral research stream programs and the number of years that the student will be eligible. In addition to the Base Funding, all eligible students will receive the cost of academic tuition and fees. More information about Base Funding can be found at .​

Actual Income -

Students often have the opportunity to earn additional income through research stipends, internal and external fellowships, RA employment income and TA-ships. Therefore, the average actual income of students in a program is typically higher than the Base Funding amount in that program. More information about Actual Incomes can be found at .
