Metallurgy and Materials Engineering

Metallurgy and Materials Engineering, which covers a wide range of scientific and technological aspects, is a science and technology branch intertwined with many disciplines such as chemistry, electric-electronics, space-aircraft, medicine. Metallurgy and Materials Engineering is an engineering departmant that has fields of study such as producing new materials from molecules and raw materials found in nature, processing the produced materials, and choosing the appropriate material for the product. Today, materials needed in many sectors, especially in the aviation and defense industry, are developed and produced by Metallurgy and Materials Engineers.

Some areas covered by Metallurgy and Materials Engineering are given below.

·         Optimization of metallurgical processes,

·         Examining and determining the properties of materials and developing new engineering materials,

·         Numerical simulation, modeling and analysis,

·         Electro-metallurgy applications,

·         Production, development and examination of properties of metallic, ceramic, plastic and composite materials,

·         Casting, welding, heat treatment, machining, material inspection, coating and quality control,

·         Biomaterial applications etc.

Our students are planned to graduate as Metallurgical and Materials Engineering graduates who can transform the theoretical knowledge they have acquired in these fields into practice, are competent in contemporary, innovative, advanced and technological materials, closely follow up-to-date technology and play a role in its development.
