Materials Science

A master's degree is a postgraduate academic degree. One must already have an undergraduate degree to apply for a master's program. Most master's degree program would require students to complete a master's thesis or research paper.

Around the world, scientists are looking into new and better ways to use our existing resources or create new materials for industrial purposes. Materials science educates students for a career to address the needs of a global economy, by concentrating on engineering, chemistry, and technology.

Greece developed their education system with higher education at the top. Over 40% of all Greeks live in Athens and there is also where the best opportunities to pursue an higher education level is. Bordered by Albania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey, Greece is a tourist pearl with one of the world's fantastic beaches.

Crete ranks as the largest of the Greek islands in regards to population and size. It is an essential part of the national economy rich in Greek culture and heritage. It is renowned for its wide variety of flower and bird species.

Masters in Materials Science in Crete in Greece. ENVIRONMENTS- ECONOMIC GEOLOGY-SOIL MANAGEMENT-GEOTECHNICAL ENGINEERING-GEOMATERIAL-NANOMATERIAL IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science : the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator), the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal, the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil. Why clay minerals ? Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest. In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology, because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials. Clay knowledge is extremely inter- and multidisciplinary as it includes geological, geotechnical, mineralogical, physico-chemical and bio-geochemical aspects. The IMACS is the first master course addressing... [-]
