Northwestern University Materials Research Center represents faculty members from eleven departments in the McCormick School of Engineering and the Weinberg College of Arts & Sciences. The interdisciplinary nature of the Center encourages active collaborations across projects with partners and colleagues in industry, academia, and national laboratories.

The External Advisory Committee (EAC), whose members come from academia, national laboratories, and industry, advises the Center Director and Steering Committee on the Center’s long-term policy, strategic plans and research direction.
