We design and discover new materials. Students work with faculty to produce metals, electronics, and ceramics in our foundry, microfabrication lab, powder fabrication lab, additive manufacturing lab (3-D printing). Students create for industry partners and work with machinery unavailable at other universities. Our undergraduate and graduate programs prepare students to create Innovative products that touch lives–from bridges to car parts and everything in between.
