Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Student Profiles

Get to know some of our past graduate students in a more personal way and learn more about their graduate experience. What was their research about, and what could it mean to society? Why did they choose the Clark School and the University of Maryland? What advice do they have for undergraduates considering a graduate degree in Materials Science and Engineering?
