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, where basic science and engineering applications are combined, and the adaptation of their properties to technical needs in various industrial branches. It is an interdisciplinary field that has a close relationship with all engineering branches, biomedical and biotechnology fields, dentistry and medicine. Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering focuses on the most suitable raw material, production method and product 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 that will make existing ones healthier and safer.
The purpose of the Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering master's program is to train graduates who can conduct research and development studies on advanced materials and nanomaterials, which are one of the important deficiencies of our country, they can take part in the fabrication and design of these materials and can do scientific researches in doctoral programs of qualified educational institutions either in our country or abroad. The program has just been opened, the missing or weak points in the ways we follow towards our purpose will be strengthened in the coming years. Research topics, that not only based on knowledge but also can provide solutions to today's engineering problems, will be directed.
The Materials and Nanotechnology Engineering Master's program aimed to gain skills for research and applications that covering subjects such as Materials Science, Advanced Materials, Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology.
