Materials Engineering is the study of the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of engineering materials, such as metals, ceramics, polymers and biomaterials. A materials engineer predicts and controls material properties through an understanding of atomic, molecular, crystalline and microscopic structures of engineering materials. As an essential member of an engineering team, the materials engineer is responsible for synthesis and processing of advanced materials.
