MSE alumni Erin Flanagan (B.S. '06) and Chandler McCann (B.S. '05) spoke to a standing-room-only crowd about their experiences in the Department's undergraduate program and as employees of Micron Technology, Inc., which manufactures memory and other components for a variety of electronic devices.

Their presentation, part of a larger session called "Engineers Make Things Better," was part of the First Annual Women In Engineering DREAM Conference, which has been established to recruit, retain and advance women in engineering; and to provide a forum at which to share the innovations, applications and opportunities engineering has to offer with female high school students and their families.

Flanagan and McCann discussed how they became interested in materials science and engineering, how the MSE program prepared them for their current positions, the career outlook for materials scientists, and why they felt young scientists should consider majoring in MSE.
