Materials Science & Engineering

Department Chair: Dr. Kurt Sickafus, Head

Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is a discipline that is on the leading edge of technology through the development of new materials and the improvement of existing materials for applications in all engineering fields. Materials engineers can be found working in all technological fields, usually as part of a multidisciplinary team. For this reason, materials engineers receive a broad engineering education that includes design, mechanics, chemistry, physics, mathematics and electronics. The processing and testing of materials are core subjects in the MSE curriculum which stresses "hands-on" learning though laboratory classes that introcduce students to modern processing and characterization techniques. The MSE department has a large research program that receives about $6 million in research funding each year. Materials Science & Engineering
