About MRS

Academic Affairs Committee

The Academic Affairs Committee works to enhance the education of materials students. It is the MRS liaison with the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and encourages student interactions in MRS activities and governance, as well as in the broader materials community. The committee also addresses student needs through the student chapters, special projects and international initiatives.

Chair: Bruce M. Clemens, Stanford University
HQ Liaison: Pamela S. Hupp, MRS Outreach Coordinator
