Our department is a national leader in materials science and engineering research. We share and sustain that work with seminars and symposia that bring our faculty and students together with partners from government, industry and academia.
Every fall and spring, our department invites speakers from both industry, early career, and academia to present their research to the materials science community. These seminars are open to all MSE faculty, undergraduate, graduate and post-doctoral students. Refreshments are usually provided.
The Robert F. Davis Distinguished Lecture Series was created in 2010 to honor the accomplishments of Dr. Robert F. Davis, an internationally recognized semiconductor researcher who spent more than three decades as a faculty member at NC State Materials Science and Engineering.
The Carl and Carolyn Koch Lecture Series was created in 2022 to honor the accomplishments of Dr. Carl C. Koch, an internationally recognized metallurgical researcher who spent more than three decades as a faculty member at NC State Materials Science and Engineering.
