The ASEE Materials Division, which includes over 800 members, offers an opportunity for exchange among the various engineering disciplines interested in engineering materials including mineral engineering. It furnishes a basis for discussion of the relationship of materials courses to various engineering curricula. The group has sponsored highly successful workshops for teachers.
