Department of Materials Science
There are 51 staff members in the Department of Materials Science, including two Academicians in the Chinese Academy of Engineering (Prof. Fu Hengzhi and Prof. Zhou Lian), one professor of the Cheung Kong Scholars Program (Prof. Jie Wanqi), other 17 professors and 22 associate professors. The main research fields are preparation, microstructure and properties of advanced metallic materials (such as copper alloy, super alloy, refractory alloys, light metals and Ti-based alloys) and functional materials (Ⅱ-Ⅵcompound semi-conductors, thin films, and special ceramics), computation of materials, solidification techniques, heat treatment techniques and characterization of materials. More than 20 Ph.D. candidates graduate and obtain their academic degrees each year. More than 100 SCI/EI indexed academic papers have been published each year.
