A PhD or Doctor of Philosophy is a postgraduate academic degree awarded by universities. Once one attains a PhD he or she may often be referred to as a doctor.
Material science is the academic discipline concerned with the investigation and engineering of substances used in objects of all descriptions, such as medical tools, roadways and spacecraft. Specializations within the field include biomaterials, polymers, metallic alloys and physical chemistry.
Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.
