Ⅰ. Program Objective

The program is designed to enable the students to be innovative talents in the field of Functional Materials. The major brings up students extensive knowledge not only including Functional Materials expertise but also a wide range of basic knowledge in multiple disciplines such as material science and engineering, physics, chemistry, biomedicine, energy, information and environment science. This program also helps students develop their knowledge and capabilities about technical principles, preparation technologies and analysis-testing methods for optical, electrical, thermal and magnetic functional materials and devices. When this program is completed, the students are expected to acquire the abilities to design, prepare, characterize, modify different kinds of functional materials and make functional materials related devices. The graduates in this program can do research and development work in many fields such as energy conversion and storage, biomaterials, sensor materials and ecomaterials. They are also competent in management work as a staff in functional materials related enterprises and public institutions.
