Whether they are securing federal grants to support student-faculty collaborative research, accepting teaching awards from the UW System Board of Regents, or mentoring students in advanced undergraduate research, the materials science faculty are experts and well-known leaders in this growing academic field.
One tremendous advantage our program offers over others is that unlike materials science programs at larger universities, our courses are taught 100% by our faculty. Teaching assistants, TA’s, are a wonderful asset to undergraduate programs, and can do a great job in supplementing academic offerings at big schools. On this campus, however, we offer the faculty experts themselves delivering all lectures, instruction and research mentoring, a decision making factor that was not lost on recent graduate and Rhodes Scholar Tayo Sanders.
Tayo Sanders III, '15 Materials Science, Rhodes ScholarI wanted to come to a school like UW-Eau Claire because I wanted to interact with the people who have the most knowledge to share — the professors. Knowing that professors, not TA's, teach every class here was huge for me.
