UConn Material Advantage Student Chapter (UCMA) is a professional organization for MSE undergraduates, prospective MSE students, or anyone who wants to learn more about the field. Our chapter's goal is to provide our members with career development opportunities and to organize and participate in fun outreach events! These include travel trips to educate the general public (specifically students K-12) about Material Science, yearly banquets, and national conferences. While Material Advantage is a professional society, it’s also a community of students dedicated to helping each other meet their goals.

To participate, JOIN OUR UCONNTACT!
