  1. Materials Science A Presentation for the Introductory Seminar in Chemistry The University of Akron November 19, 2008 Traian-Ovidiu Gheorghiu

  2. What is Materials Science ? • Is an interdisciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its applications to various areas of science and engineering.

  3. Disciplines involved • Applied Physics • Chemistry • Chemical,Mechanical,Civil and Electrical Engineering

  4. Classes of Materials • Ionic crystals • Covalent crystals • Metals • Intermetallics • Semiconductors • Polymers • Composite materials • Vitreous materials

  5. Motivation • Understand materials fundamentally so that new materials with the desired properties can be created • Relate the desired properties and relative performance of a material in a certain application to the structure of the atoms and phases in that material through characterization.

  6. Career Paths • Metallurgy • Materials Production Research • Materials Consulting • Manufacturing Engineers • Patent Attorneys

  7. Places of Employment • Industry • Academia • Government

  8. Personal Characteristics • Ability to communicate with others in a number of fields • Strong interest in materials and their end use • Strong interest in the synthesis of materials.

  9. Job Outlook • Hiring can be expected to follow the economy • Highly competitive filed but the job market will improve • Creative and well-trained individuals should be able to find positions in the field

  10. Education and training requirements • Most people employed in materials science have a B.S degree or higher in Materials Science • It is common for materials scientists to have a degree in chemistry, physics or engineering • Interdisciplinary degree through programs in which emphasis is on materials science
