Materials Science and Technology is a new interdisciplinary field that is needed in the modern society. The program will focus on the understanding of scientific principles, analysis and evaluation of the characteristics and behavior of materials, including microstructures, physical and chemical properties, energy thermodynamics of materials, transformation states and processes, compound materials and research on industrial applications of specific materials.
This is the first initiative MSc in Materials Science in Qatar and it will bring industry and some governmental institutes with academia to develop an important postgraduate program that can lead to a PhD degree and will serve Qatar vision 2030 to develop a knowledge-based economy. The program will deliver graduate education and research opportunities for students and professionals in 35 credit hours leading to the Master of Science in Materials Science and Technology.
The program will help in solving key issues facing the world in energy, environment, communication, health care and transport. The understanding of the atomic and microscopic levels of materials through this program will lead to improvement of materials in many areas, such as new composites for more energy efficient applications, better radiation protection, safer biomaterials and greener materials for the environment.
About College of Arts and Sciences
We_They was established in the academic year 2004/2005 by merging two colleges: the College of Humanities and Social Sciences and the College of Sciences. This also resulted in the merging of some departments within the College. At the time, the new College comprised 9 departments and one program for teaching Arabic to non-native speakers. In the academic year 2006/2007 the International Affairs Program was launched, followed by the Environmental Sciences Program in 2007/2008. In 2009/2010 the Social Work program was reactivated after being frozen for a few years.See all College of Arts and Sciences courses
