Material Science & Engineering

What is Material Science and Engineering?
Material Science and Engineering focuses on improving existing materials and developing new ones. Engineers in this area understand how to manipulate materials to benefit technological advances in engineering, manufacturing and health.

This branch of engineering combines chemistry, physics and biology with mathematics and the principles of mechanical, chemical and electrical engineering. As a result, Material Science Engineers are highly marketable.

Material Science and Engineering as part of your Diploma
UNSW Diploma students will gain hands-on experience in engineering design and programming in addition to learning the fundamentals of mathematics and physics. All discipline-specific diploma courses are equivalent to first year undergraduate courses but students receive added support and will also be equipped with academic and English skills. This will ensure students have a strong basis for their journey into second year at UNSW Sydney.
