Materials engineering deals with the applied science and engineering of both metallic and nonmetallic materials, including their production, processing, properties, and applications. The materials engineer is concerned with various aspects of a broad field, which includes metal extraction, the forming and fabrication of materials, engineering behavior of metals and alloys, and the processing and properties of ceramics and polymers. Materials and their properties are an important design consideration in many engineering projects; in fact, in many cases the success of major new technologies hinges critically upon new and often unforeseen demands on materials performance.
