Materials Science and Engineering -A full time academic master of postgraduate training program as a First-level Discipline (for foreign students in English teaching)
（Discipline code：0805 Grant: Master of Science）
I. An Introduction to the Discipline
As a master’s degree authorization First-level discipline, Materials Science and Engineering Discipline includes three secondary disciplines which are Material Physics and Chemistry, Materials Science and Materials Process Engineering in Materials Science and Engineering College. For many years, centered on the national construction industry and the local economic construction, it lays more emphasis on carrying out academic research and technology development and application in the fields of Advanced and Prefabricated Civil Engineering Materials, Green Construction Materials in Northern Aera, Service Behavior and Degradation Mechanism of Materials, Materials Preparation and Processing Technology which has made remarkable achievements and plays an important role in the national construction industry, especially in the construction of the local economy. Besides, it has trained a large number of high-level Materials talents for the country and local construction industry, especially those who are in the fields of development and application of key technology research in Advanced Materials.
II. Cultivating Goals
1. To master solid foundation theory, the system of specialized knowledge and the necessary experimental skills, be familiar with the trend of the development of the research in science and technology.
2. To obtain the innovation of scientific spirit, the ability to engage in scientific research or undertake a specialized technical work independently. To master a foreign language, be able to read specialized literature skillfully, and have the listening and speaking as well as written skills.
3. To get a healthy body and good psychological quality.
III. Cultivating Mode
1. The cultivation process of academic graduate students should be integrating theory with practice, which is to help graduate students to have an in-depth understanding about the basic theory and specialized knowledge in the discipline. What’s more, it should help graduate students to master the basic methods and skills in scientific research in order to foster their scientific research ability.
2. The overall responsibility for the supervisor of postgraduates is taken as a way of instruction mode, which advocates that the steering group headed by the supervisor instruct the students together with the supervisor as the first person in charge.
IV. Duration of Schooling
Duration of schooling for academic graduate student education is 2.5 years, the period of schooling is 2.5 ~ 4 years (including suspension). Course learning time usually lasts 1 year.
Excellent postgraduate in course study and thesis writing who are qualified in the examination can apply for graduation defense in advance; those graduate students who fail to get requested credits and complete the thesis, they may apply for deferment, but no more than 4 years.
About graduation defense in advance and graduation deferment, Please check out the two regulations for more details, which are The Master’s degree thesis defense regulations in advance in Shenyang Jianzhu University and The graduate students graduation deferment regulations in Shenyang Jianzhu University

VI. Credit Requirements and Curriculum
1. Credit Requirements
The courses could be divided into three categories: degree course, compulsory course and optional course. The total credits required should be no less than 20 credits. Among them, the degree course no less than 8 credits, compulsory course no less than 6 credits, optional course no less than 6 credits; Academic activities no less than 1 credits.
2. The Curriculum (see the table below)
VII、Course and Assessment
Graduate students should learn those courses according to training program and complete the required credits. Course examination will be graded by the centesimal system evaluation; Those students who failed in the exam in degree courses and compulsory courses is granted a make-up exam once, those students who failed in the make-up exam is permitted to revamp credit once; Those students who fail in the elective courses assessment, can rebuild the course, also can give up the course, to choose other courses. Scoring in attendance and homework should account for 50% and test scores 50%.
It should pay attention to cultivating the graduate student in the aspects of literature review, theoretical analysis and calculation, experimental operation, scientific research and innovation, and innovation ability to work independently. Specific requirements are as follows:
1. Subject Selection and Opening
Under the guidance of supervisors, through literature review, investigation and participation in scientific research activities to decide on a certain research subject, the students should propose the thesis proposal to the discipline and the supporting institution, confirm the work plan, make clear the main contents, technical requirements, schedule and arrangement of the thesis. After the approval of the thesis proposal, the students can carry on the thesis work. Excellent thesis will be selected into “outstanding degree thesis data bank” according to the thesis proposal.
The thesis proposal in general will be arranged in the third semester.
2. The Degree Thesis Writing
The duration of thesis writing is usually 1 ~ 1.5 years. The thesis should reflect the author research methodology, technology and achievement. The new methods and new technology in the thesis should be advanced and practical, which should have certain economic and social benefits. Thesis writing requires reliable information, correct theory, accurate data, clear argument and succinct expressions. The number of words in the main body of the thesis should be up to 10000 ~ 30000 words.
3. The Mid-term Inspection
The mid-term inspection must be carried on during the period of master's degree thesis work. The mid-term inspection panel should be established and a degree thesis mid-term inspection meeting should be carried out to check the progress of the work of graduate student degree thesis. It is necessary to get the supervisor’s permission as well as the audit of school (department) if there are changes or adjustment in the process of thesis writing, and then it should be submitted to the graduate school for the record. Those students who do not take part in the thesis mid-term inspection for no reason can’t go to the next stage of thesis review and thesis defense. According to the result of the mid-term inspection, the best thesis will be selected to enter into the mid-term stage "outstanding thesis data bank".
The thesis mid-term inspection in general will be arranged in the fourth semester.
4. The Thesis Pre-defense and Formal Defense
Graduate students may apply for the defense to the academic degree evaluation committee for defense with the required credits and completion of degree thesis as well as the completion of required courses learning and practice in the program. There must be a pre-defense advance must be before the formal thesis defense, with time interval at least 25 days.
Graduate students can take part in the thesis defense after they must pass the thesis review, anonymous review and similarity detection, etc. Please check out The Master’s degree thesis work regulations in Shenyang Jianzhu University for the more detailed .specific procedures
The thesis pre-defense and defense in general will be arranged at the end of the fifth semester.
