Materials and Metallurgical Engineering

Materials and Metallurgical Engineering is an emerging trend in the Engineering discipline which involves development of new processes for producing specialty materials, such as plastics, lightweight metal alloys and bio and nano-materials, for a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications. It is noteworthy that every product, regardless of size, shape and/or area of use, is made of materials. These materials must specify the correct properties; – first for the production and subsequently for service. The choice of materials must therefore ensure that the products will not fail in service.

VISION
Our vision is to be an internationally recognized centre of excellence for training, research and development in the field of Materials and Metallurgical Engineering.

MISSION
i. Providing high quality learning programme, training and research activities.
ii. Graduating students with required skills of national relevance to compete at international level.
iii. Attracting and developing high calibre faculty members for advancing cutting edge research in materials engineering.

INTRODUCTION

Materials and Metallurgy Engineering is course for advance and high technology applications. These includes but not limited to; metals, non-metals, ceramics and polymers, composites. Also, an emerging trend in the Engineering industry is the development of new processes for producing specialty materials, such as plastics, lightweight metal alloys and nano-materials, for a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications. It is noteworthy that every product, regardless of size, shape and/or area of use, is made of materials. These materials must specify the correct properties; – first for the production and subsequently for service. The choice of materials must therefore ensure that the products will not fail in service. This course therefore covers these areas and is designed to provide the students with the skills for a successful career in the materials and related industries. As with most engineering courses, core engineering concepts are covered in earlier years of the (One and two hundred levels), with specialty materials-related topics being introduced at the later stages which include industrial polymer engineering, reaction engineering, materials properties and structures, and nano-technology.

PHILOSOPHY

The philosophy of this programme is to attain the ultimate height in the training of high level ICT compliant material Engineers. Such manpower should imbibe self-confidence, technical innovation based on sound scientific and technological knowledge to meet the daunting challenges of materials processing and application for the benefit of Nigerians and the World at large.
