Materials science is a rapidly growing interdisciplinary field that aims to understand the fundamental properties of materials. Materials science has broad applications across technology, healthcare, engineering and environmental science.
At Australia’s top-ranking university, you will gain a broad understanding in the fundamentals and specialist knowledge to face the key challenges in the development of new materials including nanomaterials. You can apply this knowledge to address current global challenges, such as producing materials for renewable energies, battery storage, energy efficiency, tissue engineering, and environmentally conscious and biocompatible materials such as biodegradable plastics.
As an interdisciplinary science, materials science draws on the cognate disciplines of chemistry, physics and engineering to equip you with a broad skillset. This program includes a mix of coursework and research projects, equipping you with the required skills and knowledge of the scientific, technical, and societal aspects of materials to be highly competitive in the rapidly expanding materials science industry of the present day and of the future.
Drawing on world leading expertise from materials scientists across our chemistry, physics and engineering research schools, the Master of Science in Materials Science (Advanced) at the Australian National University will provide you with the techniques and skills that are in high demand. It will prepare you for a bright future in industry, government or education across areas including green energy technologies, polymer technologies, biomedical engineering, materials engineering, and chemical engineering.
