Interdisciplinary Teams Developing Innovative Solutions

Students will develop the ability to formulate relevant problems in material design or manufacturing and work in interdisciplinary teams to develop innovative solutions. Integrative courses will allow these teams to synthesize solutions and products to address problems of increasing complexity and sophistication. Students will complete the program with the capabilities to define relevant, contemporary problems in materials design and manufacturing whose solution has commercial potential. The program will potentially lead to the creation of intellectual property and software for commercialization.
