Materials Science and Engineering is an interdisciplinary field that is closely related to diverse disciplines such as physics, chemistry, biology, or chemical and mechanical engineering and mechanics. Materials Science and Engineering (MAT) aims at furnishing its students with the theoretical and practical skills necessary for the understanding, design, and application of advanced technology materials.

Industrial production based on polymers in particular can be low-cost, and not consume a large amount of space or energy --making this an attractive field for small-scale venture capital undertakings. More generally, and as a result of the interdisciplinary nature and flexibility of the MAT program, its graduates are likely to enjoy job opportunities ranging from basic and applied research in the physical,chemical, or biological sciences to industries concentrating on advanced technological materials.
