Are you a curious inventor at heart? Do you want to know how to evaluate and test materials? Investigate material development, production and functionality as you explore ways to use engineering mechanics, physics, chemistry, metallurgy, polymer and ceramics principles to solve real-world problems.

Every facet of engineering is affected by the materials used in the production process and the product itself. From start to finish, aspects of materials quality, flexibility, function, endurance and vulnerabilities matter. Whether you work for a smartphone development company or a biomedical engineering firm, materials science affects the baseline of all product capabilities.

As a materials scientist, materials engineer or engineer with a focus on materials science, you can make a difference in your company’s product research and development by deepening your knowledge. You will learn to troubleshoot existing problems, prevent future problems and improve the design, process and production of materials.
