Institute of Materials Engineering

The goal of the Institute of Materials Engineering is to provide graduate students with an advanced background in materials engineering and to develop the experimentation skills that are required in future careers in various industries, governmental organizations, research and development institutes, and advanced studies.

Research fields and curricula in this institute emphasize aqueous corrosion and corrosion control, high-temperature corrosion and prevention, surface modification of alloys, surface modification processes, welding techniques, corrosion-resistant alloy design, physical-vapor deposition and thin-film sputtering, nano-materials and amorphous alloys, and the development of marine construction materials.
