MSc in Materials Science and Innovation at Walailk University is a research only program with 2 year study plan for both Type A1 (research only) and A2 (research and coursework). Our courses are taught by expert academics, through formal lecturing and student-led course works. Our students will have access to world-leading knowledge and infrastructure by working on real research projects as part of established research groups. Students are expected to make a genuine contribution to live projects, and to produce original research of a standard sufficient for peer reviewed publications.

MSc Program Structure: 

The MSc Program in Materials Science and Innovation at the College of Graduate Studies, Walailak University offers two choices for students who are interested in studying Chemistry, Physics or Materials Science.
