MSE at GT (http://mse.gatech.edu) has ~35 full time equivalent faculty whose research spans all forms, classes, and functionalities of materials to address various societal grand challenges. Opportunities abound for campus-wide interactions within the academic units in the Colleges of Science, Engineering, and Computing. Georgia Tech is home to 11 Interdisciplinary Research Institutes (https://research.gatech.edu/interdisciplinary-research) responsible for bringing together faculty and students across the colleges around a core research area. All faculty have access to state-of-the-art shared user facilities including the Materials Characterization Facility (https://mcf.gatech.edu), the Mechanical Properties Characterization Facility (http://mpcf.gatech.edu), the Polymer and Molecular Characterization Facility (http://stami.gatech.edu/stami-resources), the Micro-/Nano- Fabrication Facility (https://cleanroom.gatech.edu), and Bioengineering/Biosciences Core Facilities (https://ibb.gatech.edu/research/core-facilities).
