With a focus in one of the most rapidly evolving academic disciplines, Rensselaer’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering is home to nearly 150 undergraduate students and 60 graduate students. Research within the field meets an ever-increasing demand for solid materials from the designers of jet engines and rocket boosters, microelectronic devices, optical components, medical prostheses, and many other products. The principles that govern the processing and structure of materials to produce optimum properties and performance are embodied in the materials engineering curriculum.
The department celebrated the Class of 2016 graduation at a dinner event on May 27, 2016 at the Hilton Garden Inn in Troy, NY.
Graduate students, Garth Scannell and Yanhui Huang, are the winners of the 2016 Norman S. Stoloff Research Excellence Award.
Many of our brightest Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) students were inducted into the ASM Alpha Sigma Mu Society, during the 2016 Eastern NY ASM chapter awards ceremony.
