About Us

As we gain more knowledge about materials and processes in the universe, that could open up benefits that we can’t even imagine. But you have to be willing to fund science without knowledge of the benefits. ~Fred Kavli The interdisciplinary field of materials science, also commonly termed materials science and engineering is the design and discovery of new materials, particularly solids. Materials engineering draws heavily on the fundamental knowledge gained from materials science, and adapts the processes involved for the scale and requirements of the application. There is a rich interplay between the science and engineering aspects. The basis of materials science involves studying the structure of materials, and relating them to their properties.
