At UW-Eau Claire, we tackle real-world problems by combining core scientific principles, engineering approaches and sophisticated instruments. Our graduates learn a diverse set of skills that makes them attractive to manufacturers, research and development labs, and graduate schools.
Our academic programs are rooted in experiential learning and paired with a curriculum that emphasizes creative thinking and strong communication skills. Our graduates leave here fully trained in state-of-the-art instrumentation, with experience conducting research and collecting and analyzing data.
The Materials Science and Engineering Center partners with local industries to solve their materials-related problems. The Center works with K-12 institutions to provide educational resources in the areas of nanotechnology and materials science. For an undergraduate institution, the Materials Science and Engineering Center has an unmatched array of materials science instrumentation available for use by students and industry.
I have been fascinated with the way things work for as long as I can remember, and materials science is the answer to many of my questions about the universe. Why is glass so transparent and aluminum so light? The answers lie in materials science.
