Degree: Bachelor of Science in Engineering
Major: Materials Science and Engineering
A materials engineer understands why materials behave as they do under various conditions, recognizes their limits of performance and knows how best to manufacture them to meet the demands of any application. Are you ready to help create the next generation of materials that make up the world around us? Then think materials science and engineering at Case Western Reserve University.
From the macroscopic to microscopic—and even to the atomic level—materials touch every sector, from the planes that soar above us to the smartphone in our hands to the biomedical implants that save lives. And the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve has more than 100 years of expertise in the development and enhancement of the materials that make our lives better.
Our Bachelor of Science in Engineering in Materials Science and Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, www.abet.org. It offers a solid core of foundational materials understanding, including chemistry, physics, thermodynamics and materials processing. Our upper-level classes explore materials for biological and medical technology, energy and sustainability, electronics and more. Plus, personalize your materials science and engineering degree by choosing from one of five areas of concentration:
Materials data science
Just can’t choose? You can design your own custom concentration as well!
