The Materials Research Society (MRS) Student Chapter at UCLA is the academic, professional and social organization for students interested in materials science. MRS competes in the international Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering (SAMPE) Bridge Contest, through which participants gain hands-on experience with project design and fabrication using advanced materials such as carbon fiber and Kevlar. MRS keeps members updated with professional development and networking opportunities across campus, and connects students to faculty and lab research opportunities. MRS fosters a connected, supportive community of members with workshops, social events and mentorship activities.
