Materials Science (Minor)
Why Materials Science?
Materials scientists are employed by companies who make products of metals and alloys, ceramics, polymers and composites. They also work in the coatings and biomedical industries. Other emerging areas are fuel cells, solar cells, graphen carbon materials, integrated-circuit chips, and superconducting materials.
Students conduct hands-on research training at the Interdisciplinary Materials Research and Education Laboratory (IMREL).The reserach training prepares students for graduate studies or industrial careers.
More details about the program can be found at the IMREL webpage.
