Description: Materials Scientists study the chemical properties and structures of various natural, composite and synthetic materials. They may work on ways to alter the composition of these materials so that stronger products are made and more quickly delivered to market. Materials Scientists generally need a Master's or doctoral degree to pursue top-tier research jobs. However, a Bachelor's degree may be suitable for some entry-level positions.
