About Materials Science & Engineering
A Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Anticipating and Meeting Future Challenges
Because the future will depend not only on new materials but also on the innovative use of traditional materials, WPI’s Materials Science & Engineering (MTE) program employs a multi-disciplinary to anticipating and meeting the needs of industry and the consumer.
Within this strategically sized program, students benefit from the wide range of experience and expertise of the diverse MTE faculty. Ongoing research focuses on:
- Developing and casting new aluminum alloys
- Electrospinning of biopolymers
- Cost analysis of fuel cells for APUs
- The quenching of steel
