It is one of our top goals to continue to attract the best and brightest students from the U.S. and around the world. We feel that the mixture of a core curriculum in materials science and engineering fundamentals and leading-edge independent research is exceptional preparation for future scientists and engineers.
No upcoming colloquium scheduled
We stand in solidarity with the black community and we condemn the police brutality and racial violence that has resulted in the senseless killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, David McAtee, Tony McDade, and far too many others. Rest In Peace.

The proliferation of computing power is enabling exciting new approaches to the discovery, characterization, and design of materials.
We work to understand the behavior of electrons in materials and how it allows us to make new modes of computation, information storage, and communication.
Multiple ecological and social pressures are forcing a shift from fossil fuels to renewable and sustainable energy sources, and increasing the need to mitigate human impact on the environment.
Mechanical analysis methods quantify the essential properties of engineering materials, and guide the design of new materials for structural applications.
We develop new approaches to synthesize and fabricate advanced materials with novel compositions, structures and properties.
Macromolecular solids and hybrid organic/inorganic materials promise exciting functionality arising from tailored chemical properties.
