General Materials Engineering

About the Branch:

The Branch of General Material Engineering was established in 1999-2000. The engineer graduating from this branch is a comprehensive engineer, ready to work and render engineering services in industrial, Selecting and design the appropriate engineering material for special application by using best manufacturing technology to obtain a product with the best performance and lowest cost.

Vision, Mission, and Objectives


The General Materials Engineering Branch should be distinguished and creative in the field of specialization. As well as contribute to understanding the nature of the work of discovery, analysis and characterization in this area. And follow up the rapid developments in the field of engineering materials and applications in various fields in accordance with the curriculum of the branch and to graduate cadres qualified and efficient in the field of engineering materials.


The mission of the branch is to prepare specialized engineering personnel in the general materials engineering branch (metals, polymers, ceramics and composite materials) to suit the requirements of the field of work in all scientific and educational aspects, and at the levels of undergraduate (B.Sc.) and graduate studies (M.Sc. and Ph.D.).


  • Graduation of engineers capable of understanding the types of materials, their characteristics, their manufacture and performance in various engineering and industrial applications, which in turn enables them to develop industries and set national standards and specifications to ensure the quality of the product.
  • Insurance the country's need for material engineers to develop solutions to engineering problems related to engineering materials.
  • Upgrading the scientific level of the graduates of the branch to encounter challenges of rapid development in most of the engineering sciences, including design, analysis, selection and characterization.
