Materials Science and Engineering

Materials science and engineering (MSE) is one of the newer engineering fields, stemming primarily from a need to understand how small-scale structures influence bulk material behavior and a need to integrate solid-state physics and chemistry concepts practically to make consumer products. A jack-of-all trades discipline, materials engineers work on projects ranging from rockets and medical implants to computers and skyscrapers, simply because everything is made of stuff.

This course will culminate in a group project where students will select a common consumer product and suggest a redesign using the fundamentals of MSE and the materials selection process.
