About Material Science
Materials science covers a part of engineering which involves discovering and designing new materials and analyzing their properties and structure. It includes the study of the characteristics and uses of different materials like metals, ceramics, and plastics that are employed in science and technology. Different materials have different strengths and weaknesses and are better for different purposes. Part of materials science involves classifying materials putting them into groups. Materials are generally split into four main groups like metals, polymers, ceramics, and composites.
