According to the classification of scientific fields, the concept of material engineering involves all works in the field of material science and material technologies. It is quite a wide totality of scientific problems, involving various issues of the research of materials aiming to improve the present properties of materials, create new materials and obtain information about properties of materials that have not been researched yet (the issues of materials science), as well as works of technological nature aiming to create more efficient methods for production of materials (it is an object of technology). Thus, material engineering can be comprehended as the area involving two inevitably related components: fundamental scientific research and practical engineering. Read Less
