Faculty of Material Engineering (FME):
The Faculty of Material Engineering of the SRBIAU was established in 1997. At the time of its inception, the faculty admitted students at graduate level but later it welcomed the students at all undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate levels. At first, the department was affiliated with the Faculty of Engineering, but it has been separated and independently continued its activities since March, 2004. The FME now offers two disciplines at undergraduate level, i.e., Material Engineering-Industrial Metallurgy, and Material Engineering-Ceramic; and three disciplines at graduate level, i.e., Material Engineering-Ceramic, Material Engineering-Welding, Material Engineering-Material corrosion and protection; and admits students in Material Engineering at PhD level.
Currently, the Faculty is home to 900 BA students, 250 MA students and 27 PhD students. The FME is proud of its 1000 BA graduates, 280 MA graduates, and 5 PhD graduates.
The Faculty of Material Engineering includes 16 full-time and 9 part-time faculty members and runs twelve laboratories and specialized workshops of ceramic, material processing, welding, heating operations, congelation, foundry, corrosion and surface engineering, mechanical properties, metallography, Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM), and Transmission Scanning Microscope (TEM).
Enhancing the quality and quantity of the administrative and educational capacity of the Faculty, employing highly qualified faculty members, offering new sub-fields at graduate level, publishing highly-ranked journals, promoting the quality and quantity of the students, faculty members and scientific and research papers, and running research projects at national level and overseas are the aims pursued by the FME to achieve.
