Material Science and Engineering deals with the design and discovery of new materials. This field involves concepts from the fields of Chemistry, Physics and Engineering to understand observations in Metallurgy and Mineralogy. In understanding various principles, Masters in Materials Science and Engineering students distinguish how properties of materials depend on chemical bonding, atomic and molecular arrangements and crystal structures.
Material Science is also an important part of forensic engineering and failure analysis - investigating materials, products, structures or components which fail or do not function as intended, causing personal injury or damage to property. Such investigations are key to understanding the origin of malfunction, for example, the causes of various aviation accidents and incidents.
Most of the universities in the USA, Canada require you to give the GRE. Few universities from Germany require GRE scores. However, GRE is not required for admission to Australian universities.
IELTS or TOEFL is compulsory for acquiring a student visa and as a proof of English proficiency.
Applicants must have a Bachelor’s degree in engineering or a master’s degrees in all other fields. A three-year Bachelor’s degree in any subject is not considered sufficient for graduate study at some universities. A two-year Master’s degree following the three-year bachelor’s degree from India is required.
Any engineering discipline or related Science discipline (such as Physics, Chemistry, etc.), or Mathematics is a good base for graduate study in MS in Materials Science and Engineering.
