The Duke University Program in Materials Science & Engineering at Duke University (MatSci) is a cross-collaboration of the Trinity College of Arts & Sciences and Pratt School of Engineering, a first of its kind at Duke. We offer multidisciplinary excellence in advanced materials and the opportunity to educate the next generation of materials scientists and engineers. We have six signature focus areas of research, including: Biomaterials, Computational Materials Discovery, Electronic & Photonic Materials, Energy Materials, Metamaterials and Soft Materials. 

John A. Rogers, professor of Materials Science and Engineering, and Biomedical Engineering & Neurological Surgery at Northwestern University, presented the inaugural seminar for the new MatSci program. Over 100 students and faculty from across campus came to hear Dr. Rogers lecture on "Materials for Transient Electronics."

Following the lecture and celebratory reception, Dr. Rogers held a Q&A session with students. This allowed a more intimate setting for students to inquire about and gather further information and details of his research.
