Department of Metallurgy & Materials Engineering

The practice of materials science and engineering combines fundamental science with the most advanced technologies available today in order to develop and characterize new materials and material systems that will lead technological development for the future. The educational goals of the program are to provide a graduate curriculum, which will equip the graduates with, hands on experience in modern labs to meet the challenges of the future. The degree will provide the students with the following essential elements:

  1. An understanding of the fundamental properties and structure of materials and how they may be tailored for a specific end use.
  2. The skills to design and engineer a wide variety of materials including alloys, composites, ceramics and electronic materials for the next generation of products.
  3. The skills to design complex material systems, processing and manufacturing routes for use in advanced technology applications.
  4. The skills to work as a specialist on multidisciplinary design teams in an industrial setting and select materials based on quality and reliability.

Scope of B.Sc. (Engg.) degree in Metallurgy & Materials Engineering would increase in Pakistan and more and more employment opportunities would be available in universities, research organizations and industry. The graduates of Metallurgy and Materials Science/Engineering have been working in most of the government and non-government organizations in Pakistan and abroad.
