The Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is one of seven academic departments in Carnegie Institute of Technology,
the engineering college at Carnegie Mellon. MSE has a long and distinguished tradition in materials education and research, and today
our faculty continue to address the more important and challenging issues at the forefront of science and technology.
Materials Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary activity that applies the principles of basic sciences and engineering to
understanding the behavior of materials, their development and applications. Both our undergraduate and graduate students are
exposed to this interdisciplinary approach.
