Education is central to the mission of the Center for Materials Science and Engineering. CMSE offers a broad range of educational outreach programs for K-12 students and teachers, as well as undergraduates. The overriding objectives of all these programs are:

Pre-college students are introduced to the world of materials science and engineering through programs that engage them in hands-on activities led by CMSE faculty, staff, and students. K-12 teachers are provided with opportunities to actively participate in CMSE research. In addition, the Center offers teachers focused workshops to increase their content knowledge. Local community college students and undergraduates from colleges and universities across the country spend summers on campus learning about science concepts and new technologies via direct participation in faculty-led, interdisciplinary materials research groups.

In addition to educational outreach to the broader community, CMSE offers education programs for MIT students at both the undergraduate and graduate level. They participate in frontier science and engineering research as an integral part of their professional education. In addition to participating in current research, they learn about cutting-edge materials topics through the CMSE colloquia and are trained to use state-of-the-art research equipment in the Shared Experimental Facilities.
