thin film preparation

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.

Undergraduate Programs

Students majoring in materials science and engineering receive a thorough grounding in the basic sciences and engineering of all materials, plus laboratory experience designed to familiarize students with the instruments and advanced techniques used to characterize materials, in our ABET-accredited program.
