Materials System Engineering is a discipline that understands the properties of materials in various aspects, develops manufacturing processes to realize the designed properties, and provides new values for the materials and processes to our society. There has always been a demand for new materials in human civilization, and new materials have helped our society make great strides in a variety of technology fields, such as electronics, communication, energy, and transport. In this rapidly changing society, the importance of material scientists/engineers with creative ideas is higher than ever. We are helping our students to have core competencies through a high-level of education and contributing to society by developing new materials and innovative processes.
