MSE is an inherent interdisciplinary field, coupling fundamental scientific principles of knowledge-based fields: mathematics, chemistry, physics, and biology with the application-based principles of engineering. To list just a few examples of applications, with a different though systematically significant impact on societal needs, are:
The challenges in the field of MSE reside in the diversity of materials and materials applications, the variety of processes for synthesizing and fabricating materials, the complexity of materials behavior and the multiplicity of their useful properties. These challenges are converted by materials scientists and engineers into opportunities for better, lighter, smaller, multifunctional, improved materials to revolutionize technologies that positively impact society and human welfare.
