Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering focuses on the design, development and fabrication of metal, ceramic and polymer-based engineering materials and nanomaterials, starting from natural or synthetic raw materials of inorganic and organic origin, by combining basic science and engineering applications, and adaptating their properties to technical needs in various industrial branches. It is an interdisciplinary field that has close connection with all engineering branches, biomedical and biotechnology, dentistry and medicine. Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering focuses on the most suitable raw materials and production methods to ensure the microstructure-property and performance cycle for the production of the most suitable material. Materials Science and Nanotechnology Engineering provides education in case of properties and characterizations at macroscopic level, as well as examining the atomic and molecular structures of any kinds of materials. It is the only engineering program in this field. In addition to the development of new materials, it is also concerned with the production processes to improve the existing ones.
The purpose of the Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering Doctoral Program is to train graduates who can take part in research and development of advanced materials and nanomaterials, which are one of the important deficiencies of our country, can take part in the fabrication and design of these materials and can play active role in the education, training and research programs of qualified educational institutions in our country and can conduct scientific researches at the international level. Research topics, that not only based on knowledge but also can provide solutions to today's engineering problems, will be directed.
Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering Doctoral Program aims to provide skills for research and applications of subjects including materials science, advanced materials, nanomaterials and nanotechnology.
