Penn Materials Science and Engineering Society

The Materials Science and Engineering Society (MSE Society) is dedicated to bringing students together outside of the classroom. We believe that a true education involves not only academia, but also social interaction. With this in mind, we have three main goals:

  • Improve Student-Student Relations
  • Improve Student-Faculty Relations
  • Promote Professional Development


We now have an MSE Lounge Slack Channel!
We will be using this platform to keep in touch during online learning and to keep students up to date with announcements. Join here!
