Materials Science and Engineering (MSE, MatSci) is a multidisciplinary field focused on developing and characterizing materials and materials systems that provide the underpinnings for advancing technology and science into the future. The development of many major advances in science and technology has been predicated on advances the underlying materials systems. MSE is leading the effort in continuing this growth for the benefit of society.

Our faculty and staff are proud of the Department's accomplishments and we want to relay them to you. We encourage your comments and hope to involve you in our research and academic programs.

The UMD Department of Materials Science and Engineering provides educational programs at the B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. levels and research programs at the frontier of the field to meet the challenges in providing materials with advanced properties, educational training for solving materials problems, and leadership for advancing the discipline.

Our Undergraduate program is accredited by the Engineering Accredidation Commission of ABET (http://www.abet.org). To learn more about our accredidation, please follow this link.
