What Course is Material Science and Engineering in Ghana?

What is materials science and engineering?

To make any engineered device, structure or product, you need the right materials. Materials science teaches us what things are made of and why they behave as they do. Materials engineering shows us how to apply knowledge to make better things and to make things better.

Materials science and engineering drives innovation in both research and industry in everything from aerospace to medicine. It is fundamental to all other science and engineering disciplines.
As materials scientists and engineers, we integrate chemistry, physics, maths and biology with engineering to address global challenges relevant to technology, society and the environment, including:
-the environment and climate change
-advanced manufacturing
-renewable and sustainable energy
-materials efficiency
-healthcare
-biotechnology
-aerospace and transport
communications and information technology.

Learning about materials
As our students learn more about materials science and engineering, their enthusiasm for the subject grows.

Throughout their course, they produce pieces of work to demonstrate their understanding, and these can be presented in a number of ways. Here we share some examples of their work.

What you can study
Our courses will transform you from a student into a professional scientist or engineer. You’ll study from the atomic scale through to large manufactured parts, understanding the scientific properties and engineering process of materials, and materials processing.

Understanding the interaction of these three aspects trains you to improve existing materials and discover or create new materials.

If you have a particular interest in a specific area of Materials, you could choose specialised modules in your later years with a more focused degree such as Metallurgy or Materials Science with Nuclear Engineering, or find out more about a career in research.
