What you will study

The undergraduate curriculum of Nanomaterials and Ceramic Engineering (NCE) at BUET is intended to provide you with a solid foundation and a diverse and rich exposure to advanced technologies to take up future challenges both at home and abroad. This background will prepare you for jobs in the traditional as well as high tech industry and make you eligible for higher studies in high-ranking universities across the globe. Salient features of the curriculum include:

• Sound foundation in science and engineering principles.

• Solid base in materials science and engineering covering all major classes of materials e.g., ceramics, glasses, metals, polymers, electronic materials, biomaterials, energy materials, environmentally friendly materials etc.

• Synthesis of nanomaterials using both top down and bottom-up approaches.

• Characterization of materials at the near atomic dimension using most sophisticated techniques like electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, spectroscopy, thermal analyzer, optical and magnetic measurement etc.

• Advanced structural ceramics and electro-ceramics, in addition to traditional ceramics, glass, cement, refractories etc.

• Nanomaterials for energy convention and storage, electronics, photonics, magnetic, biomedical etc. applications.

• Fabrication of smart structures, components, and devices for applications in electronics, sensor, energy, water treatment, environmental remediation etc.

• Modeling and simulation.

• Engineering management, sustainability, exposure to engineering practice through industrial training, capstone design project etc.

• Undergraduate research using most sophisticated nanomaterials synthesis and characterization tools.

• Exposure to innovation and entrepreneurship to convert ideas into solutions or products, thus exploring possibilities of creating impact through start-ups.
