Materials Technology (AAS)

Materials Technology is the study of new and modified materials emerging on the technology scene. The activities of the Materials Technologist are directed toward the understanding, testing, development, and applications of materials. These materials include metals, alloys, ceramics, semi-conductors, polymers, and composites. Materials Technology is basic to a wide range of industries, including automotive, electrical, and manufacturing, to name a few.

The mission of the Materials Technologist is to understand the underlying physical and chemical origins of the properties being evaluated. Covering all physical classes of materials, the program investigates the relationship between the structure and properties of materials and then applies the resulting knowledge to issues related to the design, processing, and performance of these materials.
