Engineering Student Services Team
Materials engineers develop, process, and test materials used to create a range of products, from computer chips and aircraft wings to golf clubs and snow skis. They work with metals, ceramics, plastics, composites, and other substances to create new materials that meet certain mechanical, electrical, and chemical requirements. They also help select materials for specific products, develop new ways to use materials, and develop new materials. As a student, you can find more information below that pertains directly to your major.
Students on Academic Probation should meet with Dr. Trevor Harding.
