Materials Science

Materials Science is the study of materials, nonmetallic as well as metallic, and how they can be adapted and fabricated to meet the needs of modern technology. Using the laboratory techniques and research tools of physics, chemistry, and metallurgy, materials science is finding new ways of using plastics, ceramics, and other nonmetals in applications formerly reserved for metals.
