Master in Material Science & Engineering

National Central University

Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (IMSE) was founded in August, 2005, and currently offers both master and doctoral programs.

The long-term aim of our institute is to establish a world-class materials science research teaching unit. As for short-term, we focus on developing renewable energy and hydrogen-related technology by combining different fields of research within NCU, such as Nano-structures, catalysts, energy, and environment. Hydrogen production, solar cells, LEDs, fuel cells, secondary batteries, and super capacitors are our important topics.

IMSE currently consists of 7 faculties, 2 chair professor, 2 joint faculties, and 2 adjunct faculties. In addition to the institute office , there are individual offices for all the professors in IMSE. Superior integration with the Center of Precision Instruments has provided the necessary facilities for materials studies, fully supporting our high-quality and advanced research.
