The National Committee for Materials Science and Engineering (NCMSE) aims to foster interdisciplinary materials science and engineering in Australia, to link the Academy to Australian materials scientists and engineers, including the relevant institutions and scientific societies, and to serve as a link between Australian and overseas materials scientists, primarily through the International Union of Materials Research Societies (IUMRS).
The NCMS believes that networking and engagement with the materials science community is vital for this highly interdisciplinary scientific discipline. Through the Australian Materials Research Society (AMRS), which acts as an umbrella organisation with links to many Australian scientific societies, the NCMSE will foster and maintain a database of materials scientists and institutions to encourage discipline-wide communication, with a particular focus on early- and mid-career materials research scientists.
The NCMSE supports the following Australian organisations and societies.
