Materials Science and Engineering Graduates of the Last Decade

building a community of materials engineering alumni

MSE GOLD launched in October 2017 as a way to continue the established community that alumni had as students. This group is meant for reconnecting with friends, networking and sharing opportunities with other alumni, mentoring current students, and most of all- HAVING FUN!
