Materials Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that is the foundation for many engineering applications. Materials engineers extend the limited supply of materials, improve existing materials, and develop new, superior, and sustainable materials and processes with an awareness of cost, reliability, safety, and ecological implications. Materials engineers also address the pivotal role of materials selection and performance in energy applications, including generation, conversion, and storage. Innovation in materials offers exciting entrepreneurial opportunities.
