Sustainable Materials Engineering (E) - Master

 

UGent
The programme aims at the study of properties, production or extraction, processing, use and recycling of a whole range of materials.
This implies:



  • description and modelling of properties of material

  • schemical, mechanical and thermal processing aspects in materials engineering

  • influence of the chemical composition and processing conditions on the structure and properties of materials in view of optimal processing and user performance

  • behaviour of materials under different user conditions and how degradation can be limited.


Dealing with limited resource availability worldwide in a sustainable way is an important objective of the course.
Important materials dealt with are metals, synthetic materials, textiles, composites and ceramics.
In order to specialise in specific types of materials, students can choose between two majors.


The major Metal Science and Engineering focuses on metals with emphasis on understanding and developing innovative, light metals used in constructions where these metals have to fulfil increasingly stringent safety requirements.
Both optimisation of the chemical composition (alloy formation) and processing are discussed in detail. Ceramic materials are also highlighted. 
The concept of sustainability is addressed.
On the one hand, the student will acquire knowledge to understand why a material deteriorates and how surface engineering can increase its life span.
On the other hand, the student will learn to process metals from secondary sources, such as scrap or e-waste, and will understand that metals can be produced that are equally performing as metals produced from primary raw materials (ores). 

Further, emphasis is put on modelling.


The major Polymers and Fibre Structures focuses on polymers, especially on fibre based structures. Polymers are the main raw material of fibres, next to ceramic and mineral materials.
The programme covers the materials and their physical, chemical and mechanical processing and treatment. Emphasis is put on the technology, the behaviour of the fibres and yarns during processing and the fundamental properties of the structures.
By providing a physical or chemical after-treatment to textile materials, additional properties (added value) can be achieved.
The theory of colour, colour formation and perception and the treatment of different dye types including their application are described.
As such, students obtain an understanding of textile materials and processes with special attention to the development of products with specific functionalities (flame retardant, crease resistant, antibacterial, soil resistant …).
Nanotechnology and biotechnological materials and processes are discussed.
A lot of attention is paid to the development of artificial turf for sports and other recreational purposes.
A specific type of functional materials relates to intelligent (interactive) textile materials.
Opposite to the other ‘major’, the courses are partially taught in Dutch, partially in English.
Thematic clusters of elective courses offer students the possibility to further concentrate on specific materials (possibly from the other major), or on specific themes such as ecology, nanotechnology, smart materials, chemistry or business oriented technical and non-technical topics.

TOELATINGSVOORWAARDEN

Het bezit van de graad van bachelor, verworven in een academische gerichte bacheloropleiding, geeft recht op een rechtstreekse toegang tot minstens één masteropleiding.
Andere manieren om van een bachelor door te stromen naar een master:

  • na een professioneel gerichte bacheloropleiding dient er een schakelprogramma te worden gevolgd. 
  • na een academische bacheloropleiding met een andere kwalificatie dient er eventueel een voorbereidingsprogramma te worden gevolgd.

Extra taalvoorwaarden voor internationale studenten

De onderwijsinstellingen kunnen het slagen in een examen in de onderwijstaal opleggen als toelatingseis voor houders van een buitenlands diploma.
Meer info vind u bij de organiserende onderwijsinstellingen en onder het tabblaadje 'International students'.
