Materials technology development through engineering science continues to make startling changes in our lives in the 21st century. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE), a foundation member of the School of Engineering, trains students in the field of materials science and engineering. There is an abundance of natural resources in Ghana yet to be exploited on commercial scale. Good examples are clays, bauxite and other natural materials. It is the wish of the Department to produce materials engineers with entrepreneurial skills to turn these materials into useful industrial and domestic items.

The programme has been designed to offer three options (ceramics, metals and polymers) after a common programme taken in the six out of eight semesters. The specific goals are such that
after going through the programme students should have had a solid background in the fundamental areas of MSE (structure-property relationship, processing, behaviour and performance and characteristics. structural and non-structural materials, thermodynamics and kinetics, materials characterization and materials selection and processing, phase diagrams, crystallography, defects) before the specialization.
