The most popular doctorate is the Doctor of Philosophy or Ph.D. Ph.D.s and other study doctorates prepare graduate student to launch new plans that add to the common knowledge base of the field. Candidates for and holders of Ph.D.s often seek professions as professors and researchers, but many also go on to different roles in the charitable, public, and private sectors.

By focusing on research and development, materials science is able to provide new materials for use in industries. Materials science relies on several scientific and engineering departments to work together to problem-solve for the future.
