Materials engineers with a major in materials engineering assess mechanical processes and find ways to make them more efficient, safer, and deliver better quality. This means they directly affect almost every major mechanical industry in the world, from water supply and oil and gas through to pharmaceuticals and food manufacturing.
You will learn how to select, process and develop materials to design and make products, explore the impacts of temperature during processing, as well as the relationships between microstructures, mechanical properties, manufacturing and service performance.
Mechanical and materials engineers are employed by private companies such as AlumniTech, TechExpo and Integra LifeSciences Corp.
