To celebrate the rich history and accomplishments of Materials Science and Engineering Division, including 100 years of metallurgy in the Metallurgy Division and 100 years of polymers, including 50 years in the Polymers Division.
Foster a sense of shared history, community, and connection between the past, the present, and the future.
To this end, we invited several speakers from each of the former Divisions. We sought out individuals who can speak to key scientific breakthroughs in the history of these Divisions and offer personal anecdotes to give people a feeling of why certain areas were pursued, what were the personalities of the key participants in those activities, and what was the research environment during those times.
*Note all presentations will be held in the Green Auditorium (Building 101).
