Materials Engineer (2nd cycle degree)

Training goals 

The Materials Engineering degree was first offered at our school during the academic year 2003-2004. This course and the Technical Architecture degree complete the academic offer at our centre. It therefore stands as another option for students who, having completed the Technical Architecture degree, wish to go on to study a second cycle degree at the same centre of education. Similarly, it is also a good option for those who graduated in Technical Architecture in previous academic years and wish to further their studies.

The Materials Engineer course has two specialist streams that are planned to last two academic years or four semesters, with a total of 150 credits of classroom, practical and laboratory work. Students can choose between one of the two specialist pathways that follow:

  • Construction Materials
  • Materials for the Industrial Sector

Career opportunities 

Materials engineers are qualified to work in careers involving:

  • The selection, processing, design, manufacture and treatment of materials.
  • The application of quality requirements to the manufacture, techniques and tests employed in quality assurance.
  • Ensuring compliance with the regulations governing these requirements.
  • Recycling materials.
  • Research into new materials and their development, as well as their later application in production processes.
