Scope and Importance:-
Materials Science and Engineering is a broad, diverse and multidisciplinary field. It is continuous interaction with basic disciplines and is also contributing to meet all Grand Societal Challenges. This contribution is such that numerous reports have been produced in recent years in Europe and world - wide, with the aim of drawing a comprehensive picture and proposing coordinated actions towards the establishment of coherent strategies in the field. The present report subscribes to this perspective, with a particular goal which is to contribute to the establishment of a comprehensive view of the role in efficient development of key enabling technologies.

In the 7th century, the first capital of Japan, modelled after the capital of China, was established in Osaka. Thereafter, though the capital was subsequently moved to nearby Nara and Kyoto, Osaka continued to flourish uninterruptedly, serving as the gateway of culture and trade. The historical highlight of Osaka is undeniably a beautiful Osaka Castle - perched on top of a hill and surrounded by a moat and beautiful Nishinomaru Garden. The original castle was built in 1583 as a symbol of a new, unified Japan and was the largest castle in country at the time. Sadly, it has been destroyed and rebuilt a few times since then. While the exterior maintains its original look, the interior has been entirely remodelled into a museum equipped with all the contemporary amenities, which takes away from the experience a bit. Still, it is worth seeing, especially if you won’t have time to visit other castles in Japan. The last floor features an observation deck with a great view of the city. Something that looked incredibly cool, but sadly we didn’t manage to see, is Umeda Sky Building featuring futuristic architecture with Floating Garden Observatory on the 39th floor.
While it is mainly occupied by the offices, the basement hides Takimi-koji restaurant mall, a replica of a Japanese street of the early Showa Period. Neon wonderland and the entertainment central of Osaka, this neighbourhood is definitely worth seeing for its vibrant atmosphere. Pedestrian Dotonbori St., which runs along the Dotonbori canal, is lined up with little shops, street food counters and eateries. The place gets particularly crowded at night. Hanging out with friends and a bottle of booze by the retro, yet incredibly well-known Glico Running Man seems to be ‘a thing’. Now a symbol of Osaka, this athletic guy has been in this spot for over 70 years and is actually an advertisement for the manufacturer of insanely popular sweet Japanese snack – Pocky pretzel sticks. You can also take a boat ride along the lantern-lit canal, although we loved just strolling along it, stopping occasionally to people watch and see what makes the local ‘tick’.

Market Growth of Materials Science in the last and upcoming ten years
The global material market was valued at $149 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $1,387 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 39.7% during the forecast period. Material mediums are defined as macroscopic composites possessing a man-made, three-dimensional, periodic cellular architecture designed to produce an optimized combination, not available in nature, of two or more responses to a specific excitation. They show exceptional physical properties such as negative permeability and permittivity. The significance of materials is that they allow engineers to manipulate wave propagation by arranging the unit cells in different ways. For example, though copper is a good conductor and appears bronze in colour, a materials designed out of copper can be engineered to be an insulator and reflect yellow. Major factors that drive the market growth are capital investment from public and private sources and highly skilled researchers for product commercialization. In addition, the unique engineered properties of material mediums are not found in nature, making them inherently valuable. However, inefficient research despite huge investment is expected to restrain the market growth.
Funds allotted to Materials Science:-
MSE faculty are leading numerous research projects, which are supported by an average of $4-5 million annually.
A significant portion of this funding comes from federal grants: U.S. Department of Defense and all branches of the military, U.S. Department of Energy, National Science Foundation, and Center for Disease Control & Prevention. Another part comes from State or private foundations.
