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
• Biomaterials
• Functional Polymers and Bioplastic
• Nanomaterials for Renewable Energy and Environment
• Advanced Characterization of Materials

International student
The Department offers internships in the field related to our research area for undergraduate and postgraduate students who are exploring career options or working experiences in Thailand. For international students, the Kasetsart University’s International Studies Center (ISC) provides 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 can be found on the website www.interprogram.ku.ac.th.
