Materials and Metallurgical Engineering
Materials and metallurgical engineering is the basis for the production and development of a variety of materials that are used in almost every aspect of modern life. Material engineers produce a wide range of steels, metals, ferrous and non-ferrous alloys and advanced materials using various processes and methods used in surgical implants, computer chips, cars, airplanes, and so on.
The Department of Materials Engineering at Hamadan University of Technology has been operating since 2008 with accepting students in two undergraduate and master's degree. Currently, more than 300 undergraduate students and 50 master students are studying in this department. Materials Engineering and Metallurgy field at Hamadan University of Technology offers many opportunities for students through theoretical, practical, apprenticeship and research experiences. Materials science graduates can work in the metal production industries, metal forming, metal coating and protection, composite materials manufacturing, electronics and magnetic materials, manufacturing of industrial components, glass and Ceramics, oil and petrochemical industries, automotive industry, nanomaterials, bio materials, and etc.
The department has seven full-time faculty members with PhD degrees. The research fields of the faculty members include: extraction and production of metals and alloys, metal casting, metal forming, heat treatment, corrosion and metal protection, coating, advanced materials synthesis and recycling of metals and alloys. Materials and Metallurgy Department has several specialized laboratories including:
- 1-Laboratory of Mechanical Properties
- 2-Laboratory of Thermal Treatment
- 3- Laboratory of Metallography and Microstructure
- 4- Laboratory of Metal Extraction
In addition to mentioned laboratories, this group has a research laboratory for theses and research projects.
