Overview

Key Features

The science and engineering of materials hold the key to advances in many critical areas of high technology - from integrated circuits and chip carriers to turbine engines and optical waveguides. As a result, the field of Materials Science and Engineering abounds with scientific challenges critical to a broad variety of applications. Exciting times are ahead and Materials Science and Engineering program at University of Arizona is poised to initiate new thrusts in optical materials, biomaterials, tissue engineering, nanotechnology and computational modeling of materials.

Funding from the state, federal government and industry has provided modern facilities and supported research of ever expanding scope and magnitude.  We conduct research at both the campus setting and at our off-campus research facility, the Arizona Materials Laboratory (AML).

The department has exciting research programs in areas as diverse as high-tech ceramics, non-linear optical materials, sol-gel and biomimetic processing, and polymers in electronic packaging. It has a long tradition of excellence in extractive and physical metallurgy; the movement toward high-tech materials has not been made at the expense of this excellence, but rather as a complement to it.

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • The graduate programs in the department are designed to provide advanced study in the fields of materials properties, materials structures, and materials processing.
  • Emphasis is placed on metals, alloys, electronic and optical materials, ceramics, composites and biomaterials. 
  • Courses and research are provided in extraction, thermodynamics, kinetics, transport, microstructural characterization, physical properties, processing, and application.
