Question: Is material science hard?

As a materials engineering student, I must say it is pretty hard. Even though I study material engineering, I have taken other courses in the fields of chemistry and surface engineering. We study phase transitions, transformations in materials, how they flow, how they fail under stress and so on.

Is material science important?

Materials Science and Engineering is a key aspect of most companies the world over. In the race to make things stronger, cheaper, lighter, more functional and more sustainable, the manipulation of materials, their properties and processes is key.

Are material scientists in demand?

The demand for newer, improved materials is inherent in all types of industries. Hence, a material science engineer can find employment in many different fields. Aerospace, power and telecommunications are the biggest employers of material science engineers.

What does material science involve?

Materials science, the study of the properties of solid materials and how those properties are determined by a materials composition and structure. Atomic and molecular structures are discussed in chemical elements and matter.

What is the salary of a chemist?

The national average annual wage of a chemist is $83,850, according to the BLS, which is over $30,000 more than the average annual salary for all occupations, $51,960. However, that average salary is for the U.S. overall, which hides significant differences depending on geography, such as the state you reside in.

Is chemistry a dying field?

Chemistry is dying. If your smart enough to do chemistry, then switch to chemical engineering, youll make much more money, be in the same type of field(almost) and its only slightly harder. Federal bureau of labor puts chemists as a profession to grow much slower than average thru 2018, about 3%.
