Materials Advantage logo

UConn Material Advantage Student Chapter (UCMA) is a professional organization for MSE undergraduates, as well as prospective MSE students or anyone interested in Material Science in general. Our main goal as a chapter is to provide our members with career development opportunities as well as organizing outreach events to educate the general public (specifically students K-12) about Material Science. Material Advantage is not just a professional society, it’s a community of students dedicated to helping each other meet their goals.
