What is this student chapter about?

We, the Material Advantage Student Chapter at The University of Utah, are excited about the science and technology of the metallurgical world. As a group we seek to sharpen our intellect and expand our knowledge while having as much fun as possible in the fulfillment of these goals. Activities such as the TMS materials bowl, ASM science camp, and TMS bladesmithing competition give us an opportunity to learn and grow as we creatively implement the science of metallurgy in fun and exciting ways.

TMS Material Bowl:

At TMS 2016 the Material Advantage Student Chapter sent a team to compete against other schools at the TMS Materials Bowl. The TMS Material Bowl is a Jeopardy-style game with questions fielded in the material science and metallurgical engineering disciplines. The Materials Advantage Student Chapter at The University of Utah have won the TMS Materials Bowl twice, in both 2011 and  2016.
