Introduction 

Materials Science is a highly interdisciplinary field in science involving different areas of knowledge, including Math, Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Engineering (Mechanical, Electrical, Chemical, Civil and Materials, among others), with special interest in studying the development of new methods for fabrication, extraction, processing, transformation, structural and microstructural analyses, characterization and application of different materials.  

The study and technology of materials have been constant in human history and can be demonstrated through various stages of human civilization progress that are commonly identified with the development of materials, such as the Stone Age, the Age of bronze and Iron Age. The 20th century was imprinted by deeply changes involving the use of materials, which definitely changed our way of living. Nowadays, during the 21st century, several innovations points to new technological advances in materials such as the development of smart and functional materials and devices, the improvement of nanoscience and nanotechnology, the increase usage of renewable materials with environment sustainability associated with green chemistry and social responsibility. The Materials Science graduate course at UFSCar in Sorocaba was idealized within this new context in society, which is reflected in their scientific topics and research fields found in the outlines of this master degree level course.  Read more...
