Making Materials that Matter

Boise State is home to one of the most productive Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) programs in the Pacific Northwest. We offer innovative undergraduate and graduate programs that facilitate interdisciplinary research with Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Electrical and Computer Engineering, and Mechanical and Biomedical Engineering.

Our faculty members are nationally and internationally recognized in the areas of novel materials, biological sciences, and nanotechnology. We promote close student collaboration with our faculty on funded research in areas such as semiconductor device reliability, nanoscale fabrication, microelectronics packaging, shape memory alloys, DNA nanotechnology, energy, biomaterials, materials characterization, and materials modeling.

Please Join Us for a Weekly Seminar on Topics of Interest in Materials Sciences and Engineering.

Seminars are held on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. in the Engineering Building, Room 110 and are open to the public. View the upcoming seminar schedule for more information.
