Welcome to Department of Materials Science
The Department of Materials Science, Faculty of Science, Kasetsart University was officially established on 12 October 2012. The Department comprised a multidisciplinary approach that involved drawing appropriately from interdepartmental disciplines so as to redefine problems outside their normal boundaries and reach solutions based on a new understanding of complex Nanomaterials.
The Nanomaterials Science Curriculum was a result of the Faculty’s three departments: the Department of Chemistry, the Department of Physics and the Department of Applied Radiation and Isotopes that combined to set out the content of learning within a system, using an established set of organizing principles, competencies, and broad generic categories.
The Department’s aim is to organize the full range of learning and research in the area of synthesis, fabrication, characterization and application of novel materials, especially nanomaterials, which are of interest due to their different properties between microscale and nanoscale size. A new Interdisciplinary field is now applied in Materials Science research that includes applied chemistry and physics:
• Advanced Materials
• Biological Materials
• Nanomaterials Characterization
• Nanomaterials for Agriculture, Construction and Environment
• Nanomaterials for Renewable Energy
The Department welcomes new students as well as exchange students who seek to enroll in the internationally recognized English language, degree programs. For international education, the Kasetsart University’s International Studies Center (ISC) offers advice and training to facilitate international students to settle with study environment. The information such as education, tuition fee, visa process, accommodation and student life and can be found on the website www.interprogram.ku.ac.th
