Material Science?Watch this thread
I am trying to find out more about what a Material Science degree is as there isn't much info online.
So if anyone is doing Material Science can you please let me know what sort of things you cover and career prospects?
For "science" oriented courses, or some engineering focused courses that are more focused on electronic engineering applications, the electronic and optical properties of materials (including semiconductor properties) will be covered, and you might do some more formal statistical mechanics and solid state physics. On engineering focused courses there is often more relating to material failure/fracture mechanics and materials selection for engineering purposes, which often relates to aspects of manufacturing engineering (e.g. production of steels, how annealing/cold rolling/etc work).
