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.

Mark Hatch joins UC Riverside professor’s energy startup as CEO
An energy startup co-founded by Lorenzo Mangolini, an associate professor of mechanical engineering at UC Riverside, has brought on maker movement leader Mark Hatch as CEO. An advanced manufacturing entrepreneur, Hatch is the author of “The Maker Movement Manifesto” and “The Maker Revolution.” Mangolini and project scientist Giorgio Nava founded the startup, SiLi-Ion, in 2018 to commercialize a new energy storage material they developed through National Science Foundation supported research. The new material can be easily integrated with existing materials to boost both storage capacity and
