The Materials Science and Engineering requirement for entry into one of these programs includes a baccalaureate degree in materials science or engineering, ceramic engineering or science, glass science or technology, or metallurgical science or engineering. A baccalaureate degree in physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, or related discipline may also be acceptable.
In the areas of glass, ceramic, and biomaterials, the department carries out research in electronic ceramics, high temperature materials, structural ceramics, composites, ceramic processing, laser glasses, and nuclear waste encapsulation glasses.
Fundamental and applied interests include structure and its relation to the properties of ceramics and glasses; defect chemistry, thermochemistry and phase equilibria; electrical, dielectric, optical, thermal and mechanical properties of ceramics; ceramic-ceramic, ceramic-metal, and ceramic-polymer composites; compositional effects on the optical properties and chemical corrosion of glass; solid oxide fuel cells; high temperature superconducting ceramics; ferroelectric ceramics; glasses and ceramics for biomedical applications such as drug delivery and medical implants; and processing, forming, and microstructure control of structural and functional ceramics. The department has extensive facilities for the synthesis, forming, and fabrication of ceramics and glasses, as well as for the detailed characterization of the properties of ceramics. A mechanical testing laboratory is available for characterizing mechanical properties under controlled temperature and atmospheric conditions.
In the areas of metallurgical science and engineering, the department carries out research in physical and mechanical metallurgy, extractive metallurgy, metals casting, joining and forming, and manufacturing metallurgy. Additional research activities include friction stir welding and adaptations known as friction stir processing. Interdisciplinary research opportunities are also available in other areas of specialization through collaborations with faculty members in other engineering and science departments on campus.
