Greetings, and welcome to the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology (GT). As you browse through our website, you will learn about the breadth and depth of our undergraduate and graduate programs, the expertise and diversity of backgrounds of our faculty, and the priorities and goals that have been defined for the School.
The School of Materials Science and Engineering was founded in 1985 by combining the former School of Ceramic Engineering, with the Metallurgy Program housed in the School of Chemical Engineering. In 2010, MSE merged with the School of Polymer, Textile and Fiber Engineering, established in 1897 as the Textile Engineering program, the third school at GT.
Today, our fully unified and integrated undergraduate and graduate MSE programs are ranked among the top ten materials programs (top five public), according to U.S. News & World Report rankings. MSE at GT is one of the largest materials programs in the country in terms of faculty (FTE) numbers and the most diverse in terms of research areas which focus on all classes and forms of materials, including metals, ceramics, polymers, fibers, composites, nanostructures, and bio-enabled/biomimetic materials. The MSE research portfolio addresses a multitude of functionalities, from structural load-bearing applications to energy storage and harvesting; and electronic, photonic, and opto-electronic devices to drug delivery and mimicking nature; and developing sustainable processing approaches to machine learning for materials discovery. As a world leader in educating the next generation of materials scientists and engineers, MSE at GT is defining the future of our discipline through academic excellence and research innovations focused on envisioning, predicting, designing, and developing materials needed to meet tomorrow’s challenges in energy, environment, health and human welfare, infrastructure, security, and transportation.
Materials Science and Engineering is the only discipline that contains the combination of “science” and “engineering” in its designation. It is the richness of this combination, which is more obvious in MSE at Georgia Tech than perhaps at other institutions, that makes it exciting to learn, research, and innovate, while serving the technological needs of society as a whole. The MSE faculty and staff value the diversity and inclusion of all of our constituents and care about the well-being and welfare of our students. We remain dedicated to providing a quality education and fostering a supportive social environment that is conducive to learning and social and cultural collegiality.
