To produce the industrial high performance materials, it is important to systematically intergrade the knowledge on materials science, such as composition, deformation, fracture, refining, reaction, processing and biomimetics. In the Department of Material Process Engineering, there are many kinds of materials are targeted in our research and education, such as metal, ceramics, glass, electronic materials, catalytic materials and biomaterials. The researches are basing on physics and chemistry. We are developing novel materials in order to lead the fruitful future of the earth.
Materials Processing Engineering is an academic field for the sustainable development of our lives. The aim is to produce high performance materials with the development of efficient and ecological processing.
We welcome students who have the followings:
