Materials scientists make the materials that make everything better!
Everything is made of something. Materials scientists investigate how materials perform and why they sometimes fail. By understanding the structure of matter, from atomic scale to millimeter scale, they invent new ways to combine chemical elements into materials with unprecedented functional properties. Other branches of engineering rely heavily on materials scientists and engineers for the advanced materials used to design and manufacture products such as safer cars with better gas mileage, faster computers with larger hard drive capacities, smaller electronics, threat-detecting sensors, renewable energy harvesting devices and better medical devices. MSE is the field that leads in the discovery and development of the stuff that makes everything work. Materials scientists even work in museums, helping to analyze, preserve and restore artifacts and artwork.
Materials Science and Engineering
Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) combines engineering, physics and chemistry principles to solve real-world problems associated with nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, energy, manufacturing and other major engineering disciplines.Everything is materials. There are no any two materials which are exactly identical. Every material has different properties. Some are very hard and some are light weight. For some applications, it is very important to have those properties at the same time. To get that, it is needed to know how the materials get those properties.Basic element of everything is an atom. If it is possible to change the atomic structure of a material, properties of the material also changed automatically. So basically, Materials Science is the science that study about those atomic behaviors deeply and understanding why they are!
Who are the Materials Engineers?
For make any engineering equipment or device, materials are very essential thing to consider about. If it is a knife, there are different harnesses at the cutting edge and rest area. If it is a circuit board, there are conducting and non-conducting areas. But IC’s do not belong to those. IC’ s are semiconductors. When consider about the bullet trains, there are so many super conductors as well as super magnets. There are floor tiles which can illuminate itself at night. There are moveable robotics arms without any mechanical motions.Apart from those things, the other important thing is failure analysis. It is very important to know about why and how the things are breaking. Using those results, engineers can develop the devices and also scientist can understand the behavior of materials al well. Using existing knowledge, selecting the suitable and sustainable materials for the application is the other main task.
