The Materials Science collection supports the research and curricular needs of the faculty and MS/PhD students in the UCSD Materials Science & Engineering Program (MSE), as well as other groups on campus involved in materials research. This is a highly interdisciplinary program, with more than 50 affiliated faculty from the Departments of Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, NanoEngineering, Physics, Chemistry, Bioengineering, and Structural Engineering, as well as Scripps Institution of Oceanography, the Skaggs School of Pharamcy & Pharmceutical Sciences, the School of Medicine and the Biological Sciences Division.
Broadly, the MSE research covers a wide array of materials: magnetic/nano materials, structural, electronic, energy and biomaterials. Areas of emphasis include: study of microstructure-property relationships; design of electronic, superconducting, magnetic and nanomaterials for electronic and high-tech device and energy applications; optical and chemical materials for telecom and display applications; biomaterials and medical device materials for biotech applications; experimental investigation and theoretical modeling of the mechanical behavior of materials; and advanced composite materials for civil structures.
