With a focus in one of the most rapidly evolving academic disciplines, Rensselaer’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering is home to nearly 150 undergraduate students and 60 graduate students. Research within the field meets an ever-increasing demand for solid materials from the designers of jet engines and rocket boosters, microelectronic devices, optical components, medical prostheses, and many other products. The principles that govern the processing and structure of materials to produce optimum properties and performance are embodied in the materials engineering curriculum.
Emily Aaldenberg, a graduate student, was awarded a Graduate Scholarship from Corning, Inc., upon recommendation of her advisor, Prof. Minoru Tomozawa.
Cansu Ergene, a second year graduate student, has been awarded the Rensselaer Presidential Graduate Research Fellowship for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Congratulations to our students for receiving the Founders Award of Excellence, at the Honors Convocation on October 24, 2015.
