Day 5 –Powerpoint on Careers in Material Science

• Overview:

• Materials Science and Engineering is a field of engineering that encompasses the spectrum of materials types and how to use them in manufacturing. Materials span the range: metals, ceramics, fibers, polymers (plastics), semiconductors, and combinations of materials called composites.

• Everything we see and use is made of materials: cars, airplanes, computers, refrigerators, TVs, dishes, silverware, athletic equipment of all types, DVDs, and biomedical devices such as replacement joints and limbs.
