Welcome to Mission: Materials Science

Welcome to

Materials science is the study of stuff— what it’s made of, how it can be used, and even how it can be changed to create new kinds of stuff.

Your mission? To learn how materials science and engineering is at work all around you.

Materials scientists break down stuff to understand what it’s made of and how its pieces fit together. They build up stuff in different ways to find new properties. And they find ways to control stuff, to make it do what we want.

So suit up, junior scientists! And pick a phase below to get started.
