Doctoral Program in Materials Science and Engineering

1. Introduction
    Materials Science is a subject field researching on the relationship among the formation, structure, processing, property and performance of materials. It is committed to the performance optimization, processing optimization, and development & application of materials.
2. Research Directions
(1) New metal and advanced composite materials
(2) Nano-materials and technology
(3) Advanced functional materials
(4) New energy materials
(5) Biomaterials,
(6) Inorganic Non-metallic Materials
(7) surface engineering
(8) Advanced materials processing technology
(9) Bonding engineering
3. Duration of studies
    Full time PhD students are expected to complete their studies and earn their degrees in 4 to 8 years, and they will be disqualified from the program after 8 years.
4. Credits requirements
    Students are required to complete at least 18 degree credits from courses in Section 5 with a minimum of 16 coursework credits and 2 obligatory courses.

6. PhD Dissertation Topic and Research Proposal
    PhD dissertation proposal should be no less than 10000 words long and has at least 80 references, half of which must be published in the recent 5 years. A PhD student should choose a research topic for the PhD dissertation and spend no less than 2 years on the dissertation research and writing, all under an advisor’s guidance.Detailed regulations and requirements on PhD dissertation are documented in the "NJUST Regulations about the Topic Selection, Research Proposal and Composition of Postgraduate Theses and Dissertations". The PhD dissertation research proposal writing and defense should be completed in no later than the second academic year of the program.

7. Publication
    To meet the degree requirements, a PhD student is required to have a certain number of academic publications related to the dissertation research. Detailed requirements are documented in "NUST regulations on a postgraduate’s publications of their research work".
8. PhD Dissertation Requirements
    Detailed regulations and requirements on PhD dissertation are documented in the "NJUST Regulations about the Topic Selection, Research Proposal and Composition of Postgraduate Theses and Dissertations", and "NUST Style Sheet for Theses and Dissertations". For a joint effort with others, or a follow-up of previous work, the student should clearly specify his/her contribution to the thesis.
