Materials Science is a broad multi-disciplinary area of science that lies at the intersection of physics and chemistry and includes many sub-fields including nanotechnology, electronic materials, surface science, biomaterials and materials characterization.
About this program
An important goal of the Materials Science program is to advance the understanding and prediction of the properties of matter. Such understanding facilitates the design of new materials with particular properties. The development of experimental and theoretical predictive tools applicable to size scales ranging from the molecular to the macroscopic levels is an integral component of the MSc in Materials Science program.
The Materials Science program from University of Ontario Institute of Technology provides both a broad and integrated overview of materials science and the opportunity for in-depth study of a particular problem emphasizing either theory or experimentation under the guidance of a research supervisor and a multi-disciplinary team of faculty.
