Advancements in materials production and materials science education accelerate innovations in many engineering fields. Therefore, strong Materials Science education is extremely important for quality part development and efficient designs. Comfort, safety, and cost requirements can be met utilizing technology and knowledge base advancements. This chapter firstly introduces the contents of a more contemporary materials science education curriculum, and advanced content-related laboratory applications. The applicability of incorporating such content in the current curriculum and number of semester hours necessary to teach such a course are discussed. Finally, it explains the role that engineering educators have in preparing students to develop designs that add to the “triple bottom line” which considers costs in economic, social, and environmental terms. Successful Materials Science education helps technological development and increases innovations. This chapter is significant for its detailed discussion on the shortcomings of current Materials Science education and its recommendations of effective teaching strategies.
