Materials Science and Engineering is increasingly recognized as a key engineering discipline that enables new developments in advanced technology. Materials engineers create, design, develop and test the wide range of materials we rely on in everyday life.
You’ll find material engineers doing everything from conducting x-ray spectroscopic analysis of a sample, or studying an exotic substance with an electron microscope. In fact, materials engineers often can be found creating, designing, building, and improving the following: titanium turbine blades, aircraft wings, road pavements, microstructure, transmission line, high strength fasteners, cryogenic fluids, computer chip materials, metallic elements, auto engine materials, radar absorbing coatings, aluminum airframes, and engine valves.
