Infrastructure materials form the basis of some of the largest man-made objects, such as skyscrapers, highways, bridges, and dams.  These materials—steel, concrete, glass, and structural composites—are so commonplace that it is easy to overlook the enormous impact they have on transportation, communication, energy consumption, and natural resources all over the world.  Our faculty are working at the frontiers of materials chemistry, processing science, and computational materials science to enable the next generation of high-performance, durable, and sustainable infrastructure materials that will advance civilization on Earth, the Moon, and beyond.
