World of Materials Research in MSE @ Georgia Tech: Graduate Program and Research Opportunities Speaker: Naresh Thadhani Date: Friday, December 20, 2013 Time: 4:00-5:30pm Location: Room 210, COE building No.1 Host: Anyuan Cao Abstract The world of materials research in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Georgia Tech (GT) includes activities in all forms of materials, including metals, ceramics, polymers, fibers, textiles, composites, nanostructures, and bio-enabled and bio-mimetic materials. It is founded on the process-structure-property-performance paradigm, with the state-of-the-art being the integration of various classes of materials in systems, devices, and components that rely on their specific and unique properties. It involves synthesis and processing of materials in the form of nano-particles, nano-fibers, and nano-layered structures, to coatings and laminates, and bulk monolithic, single-/poly-crystalline, glassy, soft/hard solid, composite, and cellular structures. It also involves measurements of various properties in real time combined with in-situ characterization of the structure across various length scales, in addition to multi-scale modeling and computations for developing process-structure, structure-property, and property-performance correlations. These are then used to study material response for a multitude of functionalities from structural load-bearing applications to those for energy storage and harvesting, as well as usage in electronic, photonic, and opto-electronic devices, to drug delivery and biomedical implants. The purpose is to develop cutting-edge methodologies that enable stretching the limits of performance of existing materials, or designing and creating new materials for performance-specific applications utilizing sustainable processes based on bottom-up or top-down approaches with strategic use of raw materials. 

In this presentation, Naresh Thadhani will describe the graduate program in the School of Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) at Georgia Tech (GT), including the admission requirements and available scholarships, and provide a description of the diverse portfolio of inter- and intra-disciplinary research opportunities available for pursuing doctoral research. Today, with more than 34 full-time equivalent faculty, and 180+ graduate and 310+ undergraduate students, MSE at GT is one of the largest materials programs in the U.S. With the undergraduate program ranked 4th and graduate program ranked 9th, it is also the most diverse in terms of faculty research expertise.
