Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) is a field that couples basic and applied studies in physics, chemistry and mechanics on the atomistic and nanometer scales with macroscopic materials' properties.

Materials science is frequently an important enabler for many other scientific and engineering disciplines. For instance, advances in communication were brought about through the utilization of ceramic fibers in fiber optic cables which minimize attenuation of light signals and transmit much more information than is possible with electrically conducting wires. Thus, advances in materials science and engineering enable the development of new technologies across engineering most disciplines.
