The fields of chemistry, physics and biology have been around for hundreds of years, but this month a young upstart in academia -- materials science and engineering -- turns 50. The field became an academic discipline in 1955 when faculty at Northwestern University, recognizing the importance of studying the science and technology of all materials, not just metals, conceived the world’s first materials science and engineering department. To celebrate the department’s 50th anniversary and important advances in the field, the University’s Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science will hold a two-day symposium Oct. 27 and 28 in Hardin Hall, Rebecca Crown Center, 633 Clark St., Evanston campus. The symposium will focus on the role played by the department and the University in the development of the field of materials science and engineering as well as highlight current frontiers and future initiatives, including developing materials that can be used to make quantum computation a reality; fuel cells that promise cleaner, more efficient energy sources; and life-enhancing and life-saving biomaterials. “We were the first such department, and our approach to research and teaching -- one that stressed concepts that applied to all materials -- was quite novel,” said Peter - more available
