About Department


  The Establishment of Department:

The materials engineering department (equivalent to college) founded in the University of Technology in 1999/2000 and the first B.Sc. group was graduated in 2002/2003. The evening studies in the department had started in 2000/2001.
Materials Engineering Department is the fourth department of its kind in the country, where the first materials engineering department was founded in engineering college / Babylon University in 1993/1994 and followed by the materials engineering department in engineering college / Mustansirya University in 1998/1999 then the Engineering college / Basrah University in 1999/2000.
Postgraduate studies have been founded in this department in 2002/2003 in the specialty of materials engineering.
The curriculums of the department have been revised in 2002/2003 2004/2005 where new curriculums have been applied through the next years. The innovation of curriculums have been depending on dignified European, Americans, Dutch universities guides, due to the continuous need to develop the curriculums and to accompany the fast development in this field.

  About Department - Vision, Mission and Goals

In this broad competence the Department of Materials Engineering is to be a pioneer and innovator in the field of thoughtful scientific knowledge is the most significant priority. Our vision is to contribute towards the basic understanding required to release the effort needed for the investigation and analysis in the field of materials science and engineering. We are aiming to be a vibrant and supportive community in this field enabling advanced technologies to provide some leaderships through education and research.
The mission of material engineering department is to provide an educational engineering with high specific quality, high level researches in material field and support the industries in country. Beside, providing an engineering staffs with the specialization of material engineering whom able to select material, and use them in design for different applications which can be done by experiment and convoy the global development in materials engineering.
Program Educational Objectives (PEOs):
Objective#1: Graduate elite engineers have ability to understand the relationship between structure, properties, applications and performance of engineering materials to develop the industry in country.
Objective#2: Graduate engineers able to create suitable solutions for engineering problems related with contemporary issues in different applied and industrial fields through working in multidisciplinary teams to solve these problems.
Objective#3: Graduate engineers with good skills to do analysis and characterization for different engineering materials by using recent devices and techniques.
