DMSE – Discover Materials Science and Engineering

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering was among the first to be established at the Institute and has evolved since its initial conception. Nowadays, you’ll find DMSE professors and students alike working in new and revolutionary fields. Discover Materials Science and Engineering will take you through fun and fascinating areas of materials science and you’ll get to experience a day in the life of a DMSE researcher.

You’ll spend your week here with current DMSE students and hear about novel research from the professors themselves. Cast metal in DMSE’s own forge downstairs and then check materials out on the microlevel in the recently opened Breakerspace. We’ll explore Boston, check out some cool places, and who knows, maybe the real materials science is the materials we found along the way.
