The School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is a vibrant community of scholarship dedicated to the science and technology of materials. Since its establishment in 1953, the school has witnessed tremendous growth and become one of the largest academic units at HUST, offering distinguished educational programs at undergraduate and graduate levels, and also a rich atmosphere for technological innovation. The School of MSE currently has 154 full-time faculty members, including 61 full professors (50 are Ph.D. supervisors). Some of them received rigorous academic training from top-notch institutions such as Harvard, MIT, Stanford, etc., and quite a few are high-impact scholars with achievements well-known at home and abroad.

International exchange and cooperation is among the core interests of the School of MSE, which has forged strong collaborations with several overseas institutions such as the University of Texas at Austin, Technical University of Darmstadt, and National Institute of Materials Science (NIMS) of Japan. Accordingly, students and faculties have benefited significantly from a wide range of international collaborative efforts, including academic visits, joint conferences, and cooperative research/training.

Core curriculum: Materials Simulation on the Nanoscale, Advanced Functional Materials, Precision Plastic Forming Theory and Application for Metals, Synthesis and Preparation of Nanomaterials, Modern Instrumental Methods of Analysis, Preparation and Formation of Composite Materials, Ceramic Materials, Electrochemical Principles, Methods and Applications, Semiconductor Device Physics and Technology, Organic Chemistry.
