Recognizing Excellence

Honors and Awards

Each of the large number of professional materials-oriented societies sponsor awards to recognize outstanding scholarship and undergraduate research. All students enrolled in the materials engineering program are encouraged to select a faculty advisor who in their junior and senior years will guide them towards nomination for these awards.

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering also has three awards which are presented annually in the spring to Materials students. These awards are:

  • The MSE Chairman’s Outstanding Senior Award
  • The MSE Outstanding Materials Student Service Award
  • The MSE Student Research Award
