Materials and Manufacturing Science                     

The Division of Materials and Manufacturing Science offers seamless learning and research opportunities in the science of materials and manufacturing. Students methodically learn the fundamental properties of materials, expression mechanism of functional materials properties, material processing and manufacturing processes, structural integrity design and evaluation, and systematization of these fields. The division’s educational program trains engineers or researchers who can connect the flows of materials and information and see the big picture of manufacturing centered in the transformation of materials.
