About

Ghent University's Sustainable Materials Engineering aims at the study of properties, production or extraction, processing, use and recycling of a whole range of materials. Dealing with limited resource availability worldwide in a sustainable way is an important objective of the programme.

Overview

Key facts

Ghent University's programme Master of Science in Sustainable Materials Engineering materials aims at the study of properties, production or extraction, processing, use and recycling of a whole range of materials. This implies:

  • description and modelling of properties of material
  • schemical, mechanical and thermal processing aspects in materials engineering
  • effect of the chemical composition and processing conditions on the structure and properties of materials in view of optimal performance
  • behaviour of materials in different user circumstances and how degradation can be limited.
The Faculty of Engineering and Architecture (FEA) offers most of the Master’s programmes in Engineering in English. This underlines the international ambition of the faculty, as well as the importance of international education and multiple language skills for students.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Fracture and Deformation Behaviour of Materials
  • Structure and Dynamics of Polymers
  • Polymer Processing
  • Micro-analysis and Structure Determination in Materials Science
  • Materials Science Thermodynamics
  • Composites
