Graduate Research Opportunities

The department pursues a broad range of research which capitalizes on the unique position of the discipline. Materials science and engineering lies at the crossroads of science and technology, bridging the gap between fundamental understanding of physics, chemistry and biology, and the technological applications which are realized from the microscale (e.g., semiconductors and nanotechnology) to the macro scale (e.g., engineered materials from aerospace to medical applications). Its implications are pervasive in nearly all aspects of our daily lives. Thus while materials may seem like just another engineering discipline, its content and methodologies are pivotal in the context of today's scientific and technological revolutions: in a real sense, it lies at the center of the "three O's", i.e., the nano-technology, bio-technology, and information technology triangle.
