Materials Engineering Track

Learn advanced science and explore the properties of engineering materials—polymers, composites, ceramics, metals, glass—that have useful (and often amazing) characteristics. As you gain an understanding of how to work with, characterize and select a variety of materials—including emerging sustainable, intelligent, nano, and bioelectric varieties—you’ll learn how to develop, design and apply materials in new products—and how to create next-gen improvements.

Track-Specific Courses

Following this track, you will take a gateway course on the properties, selection and design of engineering materials. This is followed by a course in materials characterization. Then, choose your three elective courses from one or both of the following categories:

  • Electronics and optics: Optoelectronics, Nanophotonics, Bioelectric materials
  • Soft materials: materials design for biomedicine, Engineering of Soft Materials: SpongeBob Squarepants and Other Squishy Things
