Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Maryland is a diverse field that bolsters other branches of engineering. The development of safe, high-density batteries, cars with better gas mileage, ultra high density magnetic hard drives for future computers, advanced solar cells and many other technological breakthroughs require innovative materials and processes to build on what is available today. MSE is the field that spearheads these discovery and development processes.
