MSE’s Virtual Open House

Dear Prospective MSE Students,

You may not be allowed to visit campus, but we can still give you a feeling about joining our Materials Science and Engineering department.

Learn more about our discipline, especially how we are constantly working to improve or even discover new materials in order to improve people’s lives. Hear from faculty, and students. We’ll show you some of our labs. 

There’s plenty to read on our website Undergraduate, Student Resources, Research, and News tabs.
