Learn more about the materials science and engineering Materials Design Capstone Project to match the opportunity that's right for you.

Scalable and affordable synthesis and processing of materials are fundamental for their facile implementation. Our faculty is at the forefront of the synthesis and processing of a wide range of materials that can bring new technologies to fruition. Research topics range from high-entropy and shape memory alloys, damage, heat and oxidation tolerant ceramics to self-healing and damage tolerant polymers and novel 2D materials.
