Materials Research Society (MRS)

The Materials Research Society Chapter at Penn State is a very active graduate student organization made up of individuals from the Intercollege Graduate Degree Program in Materials Science and Engineering. Mirroring the interdisciplinary nature of our graduate program, this society encourages the exchange of information across the various fields of science affecting materials. This exchange of information is accomplished through various social and academic events through the year—from presentations and talks to tours and mentorship programs. All graduate students studying materials at Penn State are encouraged to join!
