Step inside the labs at UVA Materials Science and Engineering
Our research environment promotes our core values: respect, collaboration, student experience, innovation and impact. This environment fosters breakthrough research conducted in facilities that put our department at the forefront of the materials field. We are home to several major research centers of excellence and operate sophisticated laboratory instrumentation and computer modeling facilities in two connected, state-of-the-art buildings, Wilsdorf and Jesser Halls.
Whether conducting research in small groups or large, dispersed teams, you will have the satisfaction of working toward a common goal in a setting similar to what you will encounter in government and industry laboratories. Our goal is to provide an immersive laboratory experience in which you can achieve technical excellence and meet your professional development needs by asking questions, learning from mentors, and demonstrating leadership.
