The department educates students in the fundamental science and engineering principles relevant to materials, emphasizing the relationships between processing, nano/microstructure, characterization, properties, processing and design of advanced materials. The program trains students in the experimental and computational skills for a professional career, graduate study and advanced research in MSE. The duties will include (but are not limited to) teaching or co-teaching a course including: lecturing, holding office hours, grading and administering exams and coursework, managing and mentoring graders and teaching assistants, course preparation, holding discussion or lab sections and additional duties as needed.
