In this paper, the example of the Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Curriculum that exists as a scientific direction in the undergraduate programme of the Chemical Engineering School, in the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), in Greece, is presented. The course content includes several tools, such as theoretical lessons, laboratory modules - nondestructive testing (NDT) and instrumental techniques - semi industrial scale devices, fieldworks and a dissertation thesis. The presented curriculum can be regarded as an innovative educational model for chemical engineering students that choose to become involved in the field of MSE.
