Stay connected

Inspiring the next generation of materials scientists is easy by staying connected to the department.

How to engage

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is a close-knit community, so it should be no surprise that our students, faculty, and staff form lifelong connections.

Alumni Advisory Council

The Alumni Advisory Council is composed of approximately 8-10 alumni from our department. Each member serves a three-year term. The council provides a forum for dialogue between our alumni, students, faculty, and staff, and is intended to create mechanisms for our students to benefit from the experience of our alumni in industry, government, and academia.
