Materials engineers create and manufacture new materials, which include semiconductors, polymers, ceramics, ferrous and non-ferrous alloys, and composite materials. Their contributions have led to breakthroughs in microelectronics, displays, energy storage, aerospace, and biomedical devices, among many other fields. The materials engineering curriculum at Brown provides graduates with both the expertise necessary to practice their profession, as well as the inter-disciplinary foundation necessary to collaborate with the engineers who will use the materials that they develop. A substantial fraction of materials engineering students at Brown participate in research, which allows them to make use of Brown's state-of-the-art facilities in microscopy, materials characterization, and materials processing. The concentration has the following structure: Interdisciplinary core courses for the Sc.B., taken during the first two years Seven upper level engineering courses An advanced science course (usually solid-state physics) Four approved humanities courses Combinations of upper level courses can be taken to prepare students for one of four sub-disciplines: Mechanical Properties and Mechanical Processing Electrical Properties and Applications of Materials to Solid State Electronics Chemistry and Materials Processing and Synthesis Biomaterials
