Master in Materials Science

Materials science is a multidisciplinary field that explores the nature of matter and its applications in various fields of science and engineering such as physics, chemistry, as well as metallurgy, civil and electro engineering. In materials science, scientists are not only seeking for material and exploiting its properties, but also aims to understand the materials fundamentally and acquire new materials with desirable qualities. The concept of materials science is to link material properties and performance in certain applications to the structure of atoms, molecules and material phases obtained through the process of characterization. The Materials Science Program (Materials Science) has been established since 1983 which was endorsed by the decree of the implementation of Master and Doctoral program No: 577/DIKTI/Kep/1993. This Study Program adheres to the integration of education/ teaching and research conducted with a balanced portion of time. Therefore, cooperation with research institutions, industries and universities, both domestic and foreign, become the priority.



To become Master in Materials Science program with international standard, by playing an active role in education, research, and becoming the center of innovation in Material Science and its application, while maintaining environmental sustainability on behalf of humanity.

  • Conduct education to bear graduates with high morals that acquire competency in science and technology and are capable to compete in international world.
  • Conduct research and create new research groups, in order to bear graduates who are capable to conduct research activities and innovations in Material Science, including specialization fields: metal and alloy, ceramics, polymer, electronic and magnetic materials, and composite materials, as well as spread the result to in order to move forward Materials Science.
  • Educate students to become decision-maker individual in various field that are related to Materials Science and acquire capability to be independent with reliable entrepreneurial passion and soul.
  • Conduct professional services in order to improve public welfare through utilization of Materials Science while watching environmental sustainability.
