Materials engineering is a discipline related to materials science which focusses on materials design, processing techniques (casting, rolling, welding, ion implantation, crystal growth, thin film deposition, sintering, glassblowing, etc.), analytical techniques (electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, calorimetry, etc.) and cost / benefit tradeoffs in industrial materials production.
Materialengineers deal with extracting, developing, processing and testing of various materials and minerals which are used in order to produce a huge variety of consumer goods like computer chips, television sets, golf clubs and snow skis.
For instance, materialsengineers have devised the method of creating and then studying materials at an atomic level using advanced technology and processes and replicating the nature of materials and their components with computers.
Materialsengineers are widely spread in the manufacturing sector because materials are building blocks raw materials for other goods.
