What will I learn?

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in materials science and engineering is designed to provide students with the fundamental principles of how materials are made, how they behave during application, how their structure and properties are measured and quantified, and how to improve the performance of these materials.

Graduates enjoy being a part of a close-knit professional community that bridges disciplines such as applied physics and chemistry in order to solve complex engineering problems.

While the community is traditionally small, the discipline has a significant impact on the nation’s economic health, defense and human welfare needs. Graduates are employed in many fields ranging from aerospace to forensics to transportation.
