Material Science Engineering is a subset of CHEMICAL ENGINEERING. Materials engineers are involved in the development,testing and processing of the materials that are used to create a variety of products. They work with different industries such as: ceramics,metals, semiconductors, plastics, and composites to create new materials that meet certain chemical, mechanical and electrical requirements. They also select materials for new applications. Most materials engineers focus in a particular material. For example, ceramic engineers can develop ceramic materials,metallurgical engineers specialize in metals, and the processes for making them into useful products.
