2019 SPIE Early Career Achievement Award – Academic Focus
Congratulations to Prof. Hu, a winner of the 2019 SPIE Early Career Achievement Award, which is presented in recognition of significant and innovative technical contributions in the engineering or scientific fields of relevance to SPIE.
3.001 Introduction to Materials Science and Engineering
In materials science and engineering, the focus is on studying, understanding, designing, and producing tools and solutions that serve human needs. This first-year subject offers the opportunity to meet DMSE faculty, builders, thinkers, engineers, and have some lunch!
MIT.nano now open
Materials science and engineering depends on research and experimentation at the nanoscale: observing and manipulating materials' smallest parts has led DMSE faculty, staff, and students to groundbreaking discoveries that change the way the whole world sees materials. MIT.nano, opened in October 2018, houses state-of-the-art equipment that brings incredible new possibilities to MIT and to our department.
