Materials have long maintained a critical relationship with technology, impacting some of the world’s most remarkable achievements. As a result, we classify our various eras by the materials that parallel those times – think back to the Stone Age and Bronze Age. The importance of materials is continuously shifting and being redefined by the needs of modern technology and in doing so, our vertical thrives to emphasize materials of the future!

Our program has seen an increasing interest in advanced and engineered materials, packaging solutions, material substitutes, sensors/robotics hardware, building materials, coatings, and so on. We are not only driven by our passion for materials innovation, but by our awareness for sustainability. We work to solve the problems of tomorrow, while preserving the resources of today.
