Materials Engineering & Sciences Division (MESD)

Furthering chemical engineering applications to materials.

Welcome to the web page for the Materials Engineering and Sciences Division!

The MESD provides opportunities for chemical engineers and scientists interested in materials to exchange information primarily through our programming at AIChE meetings.  Currently, the MESD encompasses five materials areas:  Polymers (8A), Biomaterials (8B), Inorganic Materials (8D), Electronic Materials (8E) and Composites (8F).  The division coordinates AIChE activities in the field of materials with other societies and encourages the introduction of materials-related topics in chemical engineering education.
