Welcome to Materials Science and Engineering

Materials matter at Iowa State. Materials engineers create new materials and improve existing materials. Everything is limited by the materials that are used to produce it. Materials engineers understand the relationship between the properties of a material and its internal structure—from the macro level down to the atomic level. The better the materials, the better the end result—it’s as simple as that.
