Introduction

Materials science addresses the challenges of creating and using new materials for the 21st century. Advanced materials play a critical role in the modern economy where they are used in a wide range of applications, from high technology to everyday products. They include metals and alloys, ceramics, semiconductors, polymers and composites. Materials science is the study of these materials, their properties and uses.

Why Consider a Materials Science Minor?

Professionals trained in materials science are sought after by Northwest companies ranging from aerospace to biotechnology, microelectronics, nanotechnology, clean energy, defense, and transportation. The materials science and engineering program at WWU teaches students a balanced understanding of fundamental concepts and principles with practical applications and useful skills.
