Materials Science and Engineering

Materials have played a key role in the development of mankind. Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is an interdisciplinary field of science and engineering which investigates how changes in the structure of a material influence its properties. This field encompasses mechanical, chemical, biomedical, civil, electrical, and aerospace engineering;physics; and chemistry. It is a discipline that enables both the creation and application of materials in society. Materials scientists and engineers develop materials for new applications, improve existing materials to enhance performance and evaluate ways in which different materials can be used together.
