Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is concerned with the creation of materials with novel properties and their use in a variety of fields ranging from ultra-fast computer chips and high-efficiency solar cells to high-powered jets, and even beauty products. Today, engineering innovations are increasingly dependent on breakthroughs in materials at the micro- and nanometer scale. Students in MSE acquire a solid background in the basic sciences and in the engineering of materials, with hands-on laboratory experience in nano-scale materials characterization and processing. This program prepares graduates for a variety of careers in fields such as nanotechnology, electronics, computing, the biomedical, automotive and aerospace industries, as well as government agencies and research laboratories.

Furthering STEM in the Inland Empire through thin-film electronic materials research
Professor Shane Cybart and co-PI Professor Rich Wilson were awarded a $362,649 grant to bring new equipment to the University of California, Riverside that will allow us to strengthen existing Department of Defense (DoD) research, develop new DoD research capabilities and increase educational outreach at all levels: K-12, undergraduate and graduate, with emphasis on the Hispanic communities of Southern California’s Inland Empire region. The funding will be utilized for the construction of a shared pulsed laser deposition (PLD) facility for thin-film synthesis. The PLD system will be
