Institute of Materials Science and Engineering

Green LogoLogo Text

The schools of Arts & Sciences and Engineering & Applied Science jointly established IMSE to integrate and leverage the full potential of interdisciplinary materials research by bringing together more than 30 researchers from engineering, physics, chemistry, earth and planetary sciences and the school of medicine.

Mission Statement

The Institute of Materials Science and Engineering (IMSE) seeks to create and sustain a culture of interdisciplinary materials science research and education at Washington University that eliminates traditional boundaries between departments and schools. Toward this end, the IMSE will administer an interdisciplinary Ph.D. program; expand and administer user facilities and resources for materials processing and characterization; coordinate and provide management support for interdisciplinary groups pursuing external funding for campus-wide research efforts; and coordinate research and entrepreneurial interactions with industry and national facilities.
