Abstract:

Materials science and engineering is a field so exciting and important that our grand technologies would not exist without it. Nature gives us natural resources. Materials scientists and engineers transform those resources into human-made materials. Modern examples of techno-matter include plastics, semi-conductors, superconductors, metallic alloys, ceramics, superadhesives, supermagnets and combinations of other substances that we have not yet imagined.
