About

The Materials Engineering program from University of British Columbia emphasizes the development of new processes and process models primarily for novel materials in the transportation sector and biomaterials for medical applications and aims at providing materials process solutions of societal magnitude including light weight materials. 

Overview

The Department fosters a strong interaction with industry through their Industrial Research Chairs. Industrially oriented research is combined with fundamental studies to advance understanding of the microstructure mechanisms and resulting properties.

The department offers opportunities for study in the fields of casting and solidification of metals, ceramic processes and properties, corrosion, composite material processing and properties, hydrometallurgy and electrorefining, physical metallurgy, pyrometallurgy, remelting processes, thermomechanical processing and environmental processing.

What makes the Materials Engineering program offered by University of British Columbia unique?

Many of the Department’s laboratories and offices for graduate students are located in the Advanced Materials and Process Engineering Laboratory (AMPEL) – an interdisciplinary facility on campus that brings together materials researchers from Physics, Chemistry, Materials, Electrical and Mechanical Engineering.  Having a common home for materials research has promoted cross-disciplinary projects and provides graduate students with an interdisciplinary environment that offers unique opportunities in their training program to become graduates who will be in high demand worldwide for employment in academia and industry.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The academic courses which must be taken for credit by each candidate will be determined in consultation with his/her Research Supervisor, and with the approval of the Department Head. 
  • All candidates must must present a research seminar to satisfy the requirements of the course. 
  • Upon admission, M.A.Sc. and M.Sc. candidates will be offered Research Assistantship appointments for a maximum of 2 years, subject to satisfactory progress by the student.
