Deciding on and growing the correct supplies for future tech merchandise and programs, whether or not they’re based mostly on plastic, metal, or different supplies, is turning into more and more essential given a shortage of some minerals, supply-chain points, and engineering limitations. Supplies engineering just isn’t as well-known as different engineering specialties, however will nonetheless play in essential position alongside electrical, mechanical, and chemical engineers in each near-term and long-term analysis and growth.
U.S. Information and World Report has compiled a listing of the highest undergraduate supplies engineering packages. Design Information has excerpted their findings for the gallery beneath.
