Department of Material Science and Engineering is one of the new departments
in Xi'an University of Science and Technology. The department's
predecessor is the Specialty of Mineral Synthetic Utilization.
In 1993, the Specialty of Nonmetallic Material of Inorganic
was established. Through the development of ten years, two
