    1.1 Training Objective

    A master student should grasp the basic theories, professional knowledge and experiment skills which are related to materials science. Moreover, a master student should possess the primary ability to work on the research in materials science independently and finally become a high-competent people with the ability to develop and manage the high-tech materials.

    1.2 Length of Study Period: 2.5 years

    1.3 Course Learning Requirements

    When a master student studies for a degree, at least 31 credits are needed. Including: general foundation courses 5 credits; professional degree courses at least 12 credits; major-related elective courses 11 credits; reading report 2 credits.

    1.4 General Requirements in Training Process

    (1) Reading report: In school, a master student should attend the academic forums at least four times; attend the postgraduate academic achievement poster exhibition organized by department at least once; attend research-related seminar report at least twice; submit 4 reading reports.

    (2) Opening report: a master student needs to finish the Thesis proposal and submit related materials before the first academic year. This has to be done at least 1.5 years before the dissertation defense.

    (3) Mid-term assessment: In the middle of third semester, the completion situation of course and scientific research will be evaluated.

    (4) Publication requirements: At least 1 academic paper published in core journals (CSCD).
