Materials Science and Engineering Program (MSE)

Our world is driven by the materials that are currently available. Millions of products, machines, and innovative technologies are made better because of a new and improved material. In fact, many of today’s industrial problems await materials solutions: the automobile industry needs lighter, fuel efficient car bodies. Cell phone and tablet manufacturers are looking for of ultra-thin, damage-resistant glass for displays. Biomedical doctors and engineers are using biologically compatible materials to repair and replace parts of the human body. Computer technology seeks materials that store more information.

The material science and engineering program at E-JUST provides unique and high impact opportunity to its graduates to be involved in many Hi-Tech industries such as Electronics, Energy, Petrochemical, Pharmaceutical, Automotive, Steel, etc.
