Materials Engineering

This specialisation allows you to develop advanced knowledge and the ability to exploit the central role of materials in addressing the present technical, economic and environmental problems involved in the design and construction of engineering structures, processes and devices.

The specialisation encompasses practical aspects of the key classes of materials such as metals, polymers, biomaterials, nanomaterials and energy-related materials. It particularly focuses on the most up-to-date aspects of the field, along with the utilisation of materials and their electronic, chemical and mechanical properties as underpinned by the microstructures that are revealed by modern characterisation techniques.

The specialisation is suitable for new graduates, professionals and managers who are keen to upgrade their existing design and management skills as well as to develop advanced theoretical and applied knowledge in the area of materials engineering.

My 3 month internship was a period of non-stop learning. Even amidst their busy workload, the team in the Flinders Gate Project were very attentive towards my internship experience and development. They encouraged me to ask questions and always answered with detailed explanations.

It can be nerve-wracking handling some tasks worth tens of thousands of dollars but you do get a sense of pride when you walk past the building knowing you’ve helped build it in your own small way.
