Since Materials Science has such an interdisciplinary focus, students who choose its study are well-equipped for a variety of potential careers. There is nearly a limitless number of possibilities in both academia and industry research. Many commercial companies designing new products require materials scientists to develop its parts – from optimal internal material use to safe yet economic paint coating. Biologic industries require materials scientists to develop safe, compatible, and practical artificial limbs and tissues. Electronics and aerospace industries require new materials in order to push forward a new generation of technology. These are just a few examples of the real-world demand for this discipline. All of this can start here, at RIT's own CMSE.
