It’s a material world.
Engineers in this field design, develop and test new material technologies to help build better medical
devices, create faster computer chips, design safer air bags for cars, and much more.
As a student in this program, you will investigate the properties, fabrication processes, and behaviors of
many different types of materials, including metals, ceramics, polymers, composite and hybrid systems,
semiconductors, biomaterials, nanomaterials, aerospace and nuclear materials.
You will learn to apply this knowledge to improve or create new materials for a variety of purposes,
with opportunities to conduct experiments in modern labs, including a small-scale cleanroom for
semiconductor process training.
