GE pins images to fire the imagination of metallurgists and materials scientists-jobs in innovations

Our version of "spring break" includes pushing super materials to the limit so we can learn how to m... - http://pinterest.com/pin/423338433696990354/?utm_source=android_share

The Basic law underpinning The Development of Advanced Materials and their Manufacturing Processes

When you're dealing with jet engines, increased efficiency means turning up the heat. - This fundamental law provides lots of challenges to the metallurgical and materials science commuities. Indeed working in these areas provided some of my greatest challenges particularily in superalloy process research and industrial development and solving these gave me immense satisfaction.
