What Our Students Say
"The Materials Science and Engineering program was very appealing to me because it integrated with and prepared me for the industry. The courses are designed to get students to be engineers and scientists at the same time. The professors were great and professional, and worked hard to explain the curriculum. Staff in the department were always available to explain every step during each semester and to advise students. I recommend the Department of Materials Science and Engineering to anyone who wants to excel in his or her career goals."

"Materials Science and Engineering at Penn State has been fantastic for providing a hands-on experience through projects and research. Coming into Penn State, I didn't really know what I wanted to do, but there have been so many opportunities to get involved in laboratories and meet industry professionals that I was bound to find something that inspired me.The professors encourage students to contribute to the group and try new things, so it is a great environment for students to grow and acquire new skills."
