Materials Scientist Career
Materials science is a broad interdisciplinary field that involves chemistry, physics, and engineering where scientist work to create and design new materials. Materials scientists study the micro-structure and macro-structure of materials such as rubber, metal, and ceramics, then manipulate their structural properties to create custom designed materials that serve a specific purpose.
Materials scientists work in industries that create products such as industrial design, computers, pharmaceuticals, electronics, auto, and construction industries. They often work in laboratories, manufacturing facilities, office building, and many are employed by the government or work in academia.
