Introduction
MIT's Department of Materials Science and Engineering studies all aspects of materials, over the entire materials cycle from mining and refining of raw materials, to production and utilization of finished materials, and finally to disposal and recycling. The research ranges from the purely scientific to applied studies and involves perspectives of chemistry, physics, electronics, the artistic and historical aspects of materials, design, and entrepreneurial ventures. Research done here will change our use of metals, polymers, ceramics, glasses, electronic materials, biomedical materials, composites, and other materials.
