96: Day in the Life of an MSE in Industry

Update: 2023-02-27


It’s been really fun getting the chance to interact with MSEs from around the world, so we just wanted to thank you all for listening to this podcast and joining us as we uncover the unique ways materials science makes an impact all around us. In our fifth edition of Q&A, we will answer questions like:


🔹️What continues to be exciting in both of your jobs? What do you most look forward to during the average work day?

🔹️How much of what you learned while obtaining your MSE degree do you apply on a daily basis at work? How much of your job uses skills you gained outside of school?

🔹What have you observed about MSE’s in more senior roles? Does higher seniority come with more science-focused work or less? 

🔹 And much more! 


Learn more about our MSE Career Development Online Course, which includes more industry-specific information and advice.
