The scope of research within the department of Materials Science and Engineering is extensive. From biomaterials to joining science, metallurgy to ceramics, processing to corrosion, the department explores the facinating field of materials. Our department occupies 100,000 square feet of laboratory and office space in Watts Hall, MacQuigg Labs, Fontana Labs, and the Edison Joining Technology Center. In collaboration with other engineering departments and research units at Ohio State, the high-tech equipment and facilities maintained by the department contribute to the educational and research goals of the university.
