About Us

The faculty starts its independent activities since 2013, and is currently offering e-Learning Program, M.Sc. degrees in Characterization and Selection of Engineering Materials, and Metals Forming, and Nanomaterials.

Our History

K. N. Toosi University of Technology began its activities in the field of Materials Science and Engineering in 2001, with the establishment of a M.Sc. degree in Characterization and Selection of Engineering Materials Program, as a sub-program of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. In 2010, the activities and scope of the Materials Program were expanded to offer a Ph.D. degree, followed in 2011 by another M.Sc. degree in Metals Forming and a B.Sc. degree in Industrial Metallurgy. In the year 2013, with the approval of KNTU as well as the Council for Promoting Higher Education in the Ministry of Science, Research and Technology, the Materials Program was promoted into the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering. The Faculty began its e-Learning Program, offering M.Sc. degrees in Characterization and Selection of Engineering Materials in 2013, and Metals Forming in 2016. Another M.Sc. degree in Nanomaterials was launched in 2017. After several years of growth, the Faculty of Materials Science and Engineering now hosts 11 full-time faculty members.
