RPI Engineering

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.
