Experts on materials engineering
All of the things around us—from the products we purchase to the structures where we live and work—are made up of materials, both natural and manmade. Materials engineering focuses on ways to improve materials, create new materials, and process materials for optimum performance, reliability, and energy efficiency. WPI’s experts in materials engineering work in a broad range of areas, including the development and processing of materials for additive manufacturing, the fabrication of nanomaterials for cancer detection, and the study of methods for making metals more resistant to corrosion. Many of WPI’s experts on are also experts on materials science.
