Please note effective 20 March 9pm AEDT, the Australian Government implemented new travel bans and restrictions whereby only Australian citizens, Permanent Residents, their spouses and dependants could enter the country. For students who would like to study a course that’s offered on campus, we will work with you to enrol you online first and transition you to campus once the travel restrictions change.

Materials engineering is an interdisciplinary field that studies composition, structure, processing, properties and performance of materials used for products. The development and engineering of materials are of paramount importance in advancing technology, and essential for any industrial process or technology. Materials enable engineers to design and manufacture ideas into devices and structures with the best performance.

The Master of Engineering in Materials Engineering from Flinders University  has been designed to provide you with a strong foundation in both the theoretical and practical aspects of materials engineering, and an understanding of advanced processing and fabrication methods of engineering materials and their characterisation.

You will develop an awareness of the social, economic, cultural and environmental aspects of materials engineering in the design and manufacturing of engineering components and processes, and an understanding of your professional and ethical responsibilities.

The course teaches you to critically analyse and evaluate information and solve materials-related problems, work and interact professionally, and undertake research in materials engineering and relevant areas.

Flinders University has a research strength in materials engineering. Our leading researchers, well-equipped laboratories and materials characterisation facilities provide an excellent environment for advanced research activities materials engineering.


Materials engineers are able to find jobs in almost all fields in which technology is developed, providing a great range of career opportunities.
