To become an compound talents who can through scientifically designed programs for studies and practices, and to gain abilities of practicing self-perfection, self-improvement and lifelong learning, in addition to commanding professional knowledge.
Speciality Features:
The Materials Science and Engineering (Materials Chemistry)is one of interdisciplinary subjects between chemistry and materials science, and is also one of the most important subjects in Chemistry Science in the 21st century. The Bachelor program of Materilas Chemistry emphasizes the study of the synthesis and formation of organical materials. It requires students to acquire the interrelationships between structure, processing and properties of materials. The students are introduced to the fundamental concepts and core techniques of design, synthetic and testing of materials. The students are also required to necessary technological skills of research and development on new materials using basic theories and skills upon the completion of the specialty courses.
The graduates should possess a solid understanding of the theoretical basis for this discipline and a broad appreciation of engineering related subjects, and have the potential and abilities to pursue higher degrees.
