Materials engineers select materials, improve their properties, lower their processing cost and increase their durability. They make steel stronger, ceramics tougher, composites less costly and computer chips faster. They have developed biomaterials for skin grafts and implants and replaced copper wire with fiberoptics to revolutionize telecommunications.

Materials engineering is truly the career that shapes the future.
