In 2005, the department was established and the faculty members and active officials educate young human resources now with 276 students in two orientations of industrial Metallurgy (Foundry) and Material- Ceramic and in two levels of AA and BSc.
Necessity of the department Establishment
Regarding the potencies and available cases in the east of the country and small and huge active industries in Khorasan's extensive provinces(steel making industry, automotive making, petrochemistry, gas refinery, powerstation),specialized and efficient staffs, in branches of material and metallurgy engineering, are needed and in the direction of progress of great goals of Islamic republic system in order of promoting the promotion wheel of the
country industry, the goal of the material department establishment was followed seriously for training capable and specialist staffs in different branches of materials(Nanomaterials, Casting, Ceramic, Corrosion, Welding, Metal Formation and ...) and performance of research projects in order of optimization of the country industry and achieving to great goals until in 2005 this department was established with the faculty efforts.
Level of Education
AA:1,BSc:2,discontiuing BA:3,MSc:4 and PhD:5
