About

The master of the Materials Engineering at KU Leuven  aims at educating you so that you will be able to design new materials and make sustainable choices, both in an industrial and academic environment.

Overview

These capabilities will be based on a thorough understanding and use of the relationships between the internal structure (crystal structure, microstructure, architecture) of materials, their properties (mechanical, electrical, chemical) and their processing (the materials triangle).

 Career after Materials Engineering at KU Leuven

Prominent technical industries such as the automotive, aerospace, energy, microelectronics, and chemical industries and emerging sectors such as nanotechnology, biomaterials and recycling are keen to hire qualified and talented materials engineers.

Materials engineers are prepared for work as process engineers, materials or product developers, design specialists, quality control engineers or consultants. Graduates with an interest in research can apply for an R&D position, or start a PhD. Some alumni have started their own successful companies.
