Materials science is the study of stuff. Just about everything around you is impacted by materials science. It is the science that seeks to describe what makes up our physical world and includes such disciplines as chemistry, biology, physics and engineering.

Materials scientists investigate how materials are put together, how they can be used, how they are changed and how they can be improved to do even more amazing things.
