New Materials Research and Ventures
Materials Science and Engineering is to be the groundwork for technological age and platform for future progress.
[MIT]: "The field of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) researches all classes of materials (metals, ceramics, electronic materials, and biomaterials) from a unified viewpoint and with an emphasis on the connections between the underlying structure and the processing, properties, and performance of the material.
MSE grew out of the disciplines of metallurgy and ceramics and now includes polymers, semiconductors, magnetic materials, photonic materials, and biological materials. A materials scientist studies how materials react in different conditions (such as temperature and pressure) and understands that all materials can be approached from a common set of principles. Architects, civil engineers, toy companies, NASA, bio-medical research companies, and the data storage industry are all recent users of technologies that developed from research in MSE.
Most fields in science and engineering are concerned in some way with materials, but only the field of materials science and engineering focuses directly on them."
[U-M, Ann Arbor]: "Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is the discipline devoted to improving the quality of life on our planet through the discovery, design, development and deployment of advanced engineering materials.
Materials scientists and engineers seek to understand and control the basic structure of materials in order to make the products of technology stronger, lighter, brighter, safer, faster and better suited to human needs. Every part in technologies such as computers, electronics, cars, airplanes, electrical power generation, transmission and storage, energy-efficient buildings and devices, biomedical devices, consumer goods and health care, etc that define the modern life are carefully designed to optimize performance and cost effectiveness."
