Education and Training Requirements

High School

While few courses at the high school level are directly related to materials engineering, the foundation for engineering includes a wide range of math and science courses. If you are interested in pursuing a career in this field, you should invest in an education steeped heavily in math and science, including geometry, algebra, trigonometry, calculus, chemistry, biology, physics, and computer programming. Materials engineers who will also be designing products will need drafting skills, so computer-aided design, mechanical drawing, and art classes are an excellent choice.
