About Us

Making possibilities realities.

We are a new forward-leaning, interdisciplinary department that aims to transform the training and education of materials scientists and engineers.

We are centered on establishing knowledge discovery in materials science by harnessing the tools of information and data science.

We are addressing society's need for significant acceleration of design and discovery of new materials, emergent properties and processing strategies that impact a broad range of technological applications including advanced manufacturing and biosciences/technology in a socially responsible manner.

We use this informatics approach to meaningfully and seamlessly connect bench science with computational science methods.

We welcome students from all science and engineering disciplines and encourage them explore how MDI can be the creative platform for proving the impossible and how possibilities become realities.
