Materials Science


Why do we study materials science?

People study materials science so that others are to be able to choose an appropriate material for an application based on considerations of performance and cost. We want to be able to understand the capabilities and limitations of various materials as well as how, if at all, their properties change after repeated use. By studying materials science, we also become better able to design new materials with the characteristics we desire.
