Ceramic Engineering master's program is a graduate program that provides education under the Metallurgical and Materials Engineering Department and provides education only at the master's level.
The increasing importance of advanced technology ceramics
and composites in applications such as electronics, mechanics, telecommunications, medicine and military fields has increased the interest in these materials and caused developed countries to be among the research subjects.
With the increase
in the usage areas of ceramics, the composition ranges have expanded and the quality control requirements have increased. Our country, which aims to produce and develop up-to-date material technologies, has a successful history and experience in traditional
glass and ceramic technologies. It should be expected to show the same success in the fields of advanced technology ceramics and ceramic-based composite materials. It is clear that the realization of such an expectation is possible with well-trained
The main goal is to train expert engineers who can design, produce and characterize advanced technology ceramics together with traditional glass and ceramic materials, and establish the relationships between their structures and
Research areas of the program; traditional ceramics, glasses, glass ceramics, nanoporous glasses, bioactive glasses, structural ceramics, cermets, electronic ceramics, bioceramics, hard ceramic coatings, ceramic composites and refractories.
The mission of the program is to carry out pioneering internationally accepted scientific research on the production, shaping and characterization of traditional and advanced technical ceramic materials, which form the basis of the development
of various engineering materials, gain academic formation, integrate and interpret the knowledge gained from different disciplines, such as problem solving and decision making. To be a program that can use mental processes to create original new information,
to train a preferred and respected human power, and to ensure its continuity.
The vision of the program is the production, shaping, protection and characterization of ceramic-based materials from engineering materials, which are the basic
input of all engineering disciplines, capable of leading internationally accepted scientific research, gaining academic formation, integrating and interpreting the knowledge gained from different disciplines, problem solving and decision making. It
is to train the human power that can use mental processes such as
The program is a master's program with thesis, and in order for students to complete the program, they must have successfully completed at least 8 courses (compulsory and
elective courses, including Engineering Mathematics course), a seminar course and thesis, provided that they are not less than 24 credits A minimum grade of CC or higher and a GPA of 2.50 out of 4.00 are required.
In addition to metallurgical
and material engineers, materials science engineers, ceramics engineers, mechanical engineers, aerospace engineers, shipbuilding engineers, physics engineers, chemical engineers, civil engineers, industrial engineers, mining engineers, ore preparation
engineers and chemistry department are eligible for this program. undergraduate students can apply.
