Developing the Materials For Everything

Materials scientists develop the materials that make everything better! There are few fields of science or engineering, which are not concerned in some way with materials. It has been estimated that the work of one in three engineers is directly related to materials, while over half of all engineers have at least an indirect concern for the properties of materials.

The master's degree program in materials science and engineering is especially designed to serve the needs of the technical population in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area. The program emphasizes advances in existing and emerging technologies in materials science which include:

  • About Us

    Few fields of science or engineering  are not concerned in some way with materials. Indeed, the need for materials is as pervasive in our lives as is the need for energy. It has been estimated that the work of one in three engineers is directly related to materials, while over half of all engineers have at least an indirect concern for the properties of materials.
