and how this relationship relates to the materials macroscopic properties.

They are involved in the development, processing, and testing of the materials used to create a range of products, from computer chips and aircraft wings to golf clubs and snow skis.

They work with metals, ceramics, plastics, semiconductors, and composites to create new materials that meet certain mechanical, electrical, and chemical requirements.

They also are involved in selecting materials for new applications. Materials engineers have developed the ability to create and then study materials at an atomic level, using advanced processes to replicate the characteristics of materials and their components with computers.

Most materials engineers specialise in a particular material. For example, metallurgical engineers specialize in metals such as steel, and ceramic engineers develop ceramic materials and the processes for making them into useful products such as glassware or fiber optic communication lines.

Sample of subjects at degree level: Thermodynamics and Phase Equilibria, Advanced Testing and Characterisation, Advanced Materials, Phase Transformations, Surface Engineering, High Temperature Materials, Viscoelastic  Behaviour, Automotive Crash Protection, Polymer Processing, etc.

Materials have become part and parcel of our everyday lives. They exist in various forms; semiconductors in computer chips; light materials in aerospace applications; biomaterials in artificial organs or bone replacements; catalyst substrates in energy industries; and optical materials in communications systems, among others.

Suffice to say, it is no exaggeration that the revolution of today’s technologies largely depend on the development of new and innovative materials.

Materials science emphasises the relationship between synthesis and processing of materials, the structure (of materials) at atomic scales and their macroscopic properties.

Material properties can be tailored by manipulating its composition and structure through synthesis and processing.

The programme is designed to build a strong foundation of knowledge that incorporates the elements of applied physics and chemistry at the introductory level in year 1.

At a later stage, students will be exposed to metallurgy, polymer science, ceramics and composites, and will be trained to handle various instruments and tools for characterisation and analysis through practical sessions and cooperative placements. The Diploma in Engineering (Materials Science) students are required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s cooperative placement programme at the end of year 2. This allows students to be exposed to and prepared themselves for a real-life working environment

Study at the Top Ranked UCSI University in Malaysia

Being from Pangkor made it difficult to find information on the universities to transfer after my Diploma. EduSpiral gave a lot of information & advise that helped me to choose the right university. They even picked me up from the bus station to drop me at the hostel. Jayden Cheah, Mechatronics Engineering at UCSI University

UCSI University is a vibrant community of learning and scholarship. With more than 10,000 students from 80 different countries, the University stands out as a melting pot of diversity and learners will supplement their pursuit of knowledge with a keen sense of cultural appreciation – a vital trait in today’s borderless world.

As one of Malaysia’s first private universities,UCSI University has long impacted the national higher education landscape and the University continues to do so with its wide range of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

UCSI University is ranked as Excellent or Tier 5 in the SETARA 2013 rating system by MQA.

The University’s academic staff are at the forefront of their disciplines and their views are highly sought after on major issues; from business to political science.

Many of their academics have extensive experience working overseas and some play advisory roles in public bodies and various committees. By bringing their experiences into the classroom, UCSI’s academics cater to an exhilarating learning environment and learners will thrive as they balance academic mastery with industrial application.

Since its inception in 1986, UCSI University has been committed to further the discovery and celebration of knowledge.

Co-Operative Education Training Programme for Every Year of Degree Studies at UCSI University

During my Co-Op at Ogilvy and Mathers, I gained great work experience and insight into what working is like. UCSI University has about 1000 companies partnered with them where I can choose to do my Co-Op. Paul Kong, UCSI Graduate
