Washington State University Center for Materials Research

The Center

The Center for Materials Research was established at WSU in 1993 to strengthen interdisciplinary collaboration between various faculty members and to facilitate research and education in the area of materials science. It is under the joint administration of the College of Engineering and Architecture and the College of Arts and Sciences and has grown to include over 25 researchers from various disciplines.

The Center offers the opportunity for researchers in diverse fields at WSU to connect with funding sources in government and industry to find interdisciplinary answers to advanced materials problems. The faculty members at the Center address these research questions with some of today’s most sophisticated scientific equipment.
