What is materials science and engineering?
Everything is made of stuff! Materials science and engineering is the study of that stuff that enables our gadgets to show videos from the internet, our car to get us to the store, and our medicines to make us feel better. Materials science and engineering is an interdisciplinary field that forms the foundation for many engineering applications by extending the current supply of materials, improving existing materials, and developing new, superior, and sustainable materials and processes.
