What is Materials Science?
A DIVERSE AND EVER-GROWING FIELD

Materials science is an interdisciplinary and collaborative field, spanning biology, chemistry, physics, engineering, and medicine. According to industry analysts, materials science may be the most important technology of the next decade. By vastly accelerating our ability to create advanced materials to power industries from energy to medicine, revolutionary materials research has already had a significant impact—from saving the environment to bringing renewable energy technologies to market to creating materials for new bone and cartilage implants—and there’s no limit to what we can achieve in the future.
