At the undergraduate level, the Department of Materials Science & Engineering offers a four-year engineering curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). This is a professional engineering programme, which prepares students for work as a Materials Engineer in different industries and for further study for postgraduate degrees.

This programme consists of many components – University Level Requirements, Unrestrictive Electives, Faculty Requirements and Major Requirements, in order to provide a broad education. The Faculty and Major Requirements are well-balanced in science, general engineering, and materials science and engineering. MSE graduates will have a solid science foundation, basic engineering background and sound knowledge in materials science and engineering. The Department offers two certified specialisations of Polymeric and Biomedical Materials and Nanostructured Materials/Nanotechnology.
