Explore Materials Engineering!

Materials Science & Engineering is the study of materials and how we use them to create useful things for everyday life. Materials is one of the most useful engineering disciplines because everything has to be made out of something! If you were to ask our professors, "What exactly is Materials Engineering?" you'd get a different answer from each person based upon their interests and their background. So, do a little exploring and find out what areas of Materials Engineering interest you!
