What is Materials Engineering?
Materials engineers test the ways certain materials behave when put under pressure or are heated or joined with other materials.
They may work with metals, plastics, rubber, timber, or ceramics – or they may develop new materials. They may also be involved with developing new and improved ways of recycling plastics and paper.
Materials engineers may work in diverse areas, particularly those where chemical, electrical, manufacturing and mining engineers find employment. These areas include large foundries, steel works, aluminum plants and companies involved with alloy research.
