PhD Advanced Materials

  • To enhance the intellectual development of PhD graduates through creativity, analytical thinking, critical analysis, and innovative problem-solving.
  • Produce a new generation of technologically advanced graduates to lead future developments in fields of advanced materials.
  • Relate the physical and chemical structure of materials to their macroscopic properties governed by manufacturing and processing techniques.
  • Provide insight into material’s requirements for current scientific and commercial applications.
  • Use their in-depth understanding of material’s properties and behaviour in order to envisage and devise novel applications, particularly for high technology materials.
  • Develop diagnostic and novel approaches to technological problems and shortcoming through interdisciplinary utilization of materials.
  • Develop critical thinking, self-confidence and encourage creative/logical thinking and genuine contribution to the area.
  • Appreciate technological, environmental, economical and cultural factors that may influence materials choice, manufacturing design, processing conditions and mode of application.
