Message from MSE chair, Michael Mills

After 25 years as a faculty member, and proud parent of two MSE Buckeyes, it is an honor and a privilege for me to step into my new role as chair of the Department of Materials Science and Engineering. The excitement across campus and within our department is transmitted by our students, who are the core of our existence. Their energy for advancing the fields of welding engineering and materials science pushes us to challenge harder, to research deeper, to never settle. We dedicate this newsletter to them and their excellence. Stories about your fellow future alumni experiencing capstones, internships, honors, and student organizations comprise this newsletter with a few additional articles related to technology and the passing of a beloved professor.
