Materials Science and Engineering
Description of the major
In addition to the traditional engineering applications of metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers, new materials and composites must be developed by materials scientists to aid progress in communications, computing, electronics, biomedicine, transportation, aerospace, defense, and the production and efficient use of energy. Materials Science and Engineering provides students with a well-rounded engineering education, with specific emphasis on materials science and engineering in order to meet the needs of industry, academia, and government; conduct research at the frontiers of the field; and provide an integrating and leadership role to the broad multidisciplinary materials community.
