Research
 
The interdisciplinary Center for Structural and Functional Materials forms a bridge of materials knowledge between basic science (e.g., chemistry, physics, biology, etc.) and engineering disciplines (chemical, mechanical, civil, electronic, aerospace, petroleum, etc.) with research topics encompassing load and non-load bearing materials. The structural or load-bearing materials include the four basic classes of materials (metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites) and the non-loading bearing materials (including electronic, magnetic, and biocompatible). Invariably research and development effort concerning these materials has impinged upon more than one scientific discipline and thus the interdisciplinary approach has come to characterize materials Research and Development.
