Materials Science + Engineering
So really, what is Materials Science and Engineering?
Materials from metals to nanomaterials are the raw ingredients in every product we use. Materials scientists and engineers must select materials, improve properties, lower processing cost and increase durability. We tackle real world problems in the curriculum 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. At UW-Eau Claire, Materials Science and Engineering includes both an academic program and a physical place — the Materials Science and Engineering Center. Sound confusing? Not to worry — this site holds all the keys to your path in discovering the "science of stuff".
