The Materials Science and Engineering Seminar Series

Join us for the Materials Science and Engineering Seminar Series, which brings experts from around the country to campus to discuss their recent findings.  Everyone is welcome! 

MSE Fall seminars are held Fridays from 1:00 p.m. until 2:00 p.m. in Room 2108, Chemical and Nuclear Engineering Building, unless otherwise noted.

Please contact JoAnne Kagle at 301-405-5240 or if you have any questions about our seminars or would like to meet a speaker.

You can find all of these seminars, as well as others of potential interest, on our events calendar.
