Materials Science and Engineering is concerned with the production, properties, and utilization of metals, ceramics, polymers, composites, electronic, optical, nano- and bio-compatible, and new yet to be discovered materials. Materials engineers play a key role in our increasingly complex technological society by extending the limited supply of materials, improving existing materials, and developing and designing new and superior materials and processes with an awareness of their cost, reliability, safety, and societal and environmental implications.
Design, process and characterize materials for performance and sustainability for many uses like renewable energy and conversion, computing and communication or medical technology.
Explore the fundamentals and the frontiers in the behavior of ceramics, electronic materials, metals and polymers.
Investigate materials with structures at the nanoscale in order to tackle global issues in health, energy and many others.
Explore the design and use of materials for energy, nanotechnology, advanced materials and more.
