Material Science

Rutgers Preparatory School - NJAIS

Duration: Full Year

Grade band: 11, 12


This course is intended to introduce students to the laboratory and classroom experiences that they would encounter in the exciting field of material science and engineering (MSE). Material science and engineering is one of the most highly interdisciplinary and dynamic engineering disciplines. Material scientists and material engineers seek to understand the fundamental relationships between the structure, properties, processing and performance of materials so that we can synthesize new materials, develop improved processes for making materials and understand the role of materials in the changing environment of tomorrow. This course encompasses the broad disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and engineering by integrating the role of research and education to develop and prepare students for today’s challenges.Students will study different materials such as metals, ceramics, polymers, semiconductors & composites. Students will also complete inter-graded modules on Material Structure, Smart Sensors, Material Performance, Biodegradable Materials, Biosensors & Sustainable Energy!
