Pros & Cons
A benefit is that you get to see what happens when you add a chemical on a material and you know how to make medicine to help people.ou can get in a s
A draw back is that you can get sick or you can you can get in an accident.
Another benefit is that you help mankind cure diseases in medicine or make new material that wont rust or ruin fast.
Material Scientist
A material scientist characterizes the physical and chemical properties of solid materials. Ex. metals and alloys, ceramics, magnetic materials, polymers, optical materials, semiconductors, superconductors, and composites.
Material scientists do this so they can use, change, or enhance inherent properties to create or improve end products.
They study what would happen to certain materials if it comes in contact with certain chemicals.
Material Scientists work full-time, regular hours and normally only weekdays.
They work in different industries many work in chemical manufacturing industries others in college, universities, in government, others in research labs, they can also work in pharmaceutical manufacturing industries researching medicine.

You have to have a degree in chemistry, physics, or engineering which will help you in the field.
Some other material scientist would take courses in organic, inorganic, physical chemistry, mathematics, and biological sciences, and material science.
Most of the courses are 3 years long but other colleges offer an extra year.
Some of the colleges that offer a lot of these courses are Oxford, MIT, Cornell University and many others.
As a Material Scientist have to very observative because you need to describe everything you see that changes in the different materials.
You also have to be very gregarious or communicative because if you are working on an experiment you can ask for suggestions or information.
You also have to be a hardworker because you might have to stay extra hours studying an experiment.
The annual salary for a Material Scientist is $73,060 per year.
The amount of pay increases depending on the percentile you're in.
The least you can earn annually is $46,700, while the most you can earn is $138,570
Some companies only require a bachelor's degree to get the job, but some higher paying jobs require a master's degree.
Some organizations that are associated with Chemial Science is American Science Society, ASM International, Institute of Materials (IOM), International Society of Optical Engineers (SPIE), Materials Research Society, Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS), and Society of Plastic Engineers (SPE).
From the year 2012 to 2022, the Job outlook for Material Scientist is 6%. This job is going to grow, but it's growing slower than average.
The job requires them to be in a lab almost all day looking at the properties of different materials.
They also conduct experiments trying to see what happens to a certain material when exposed to a certain chemical.
They also write a lot of notes about what they observe and use that knowledge to make medicine or make new ways to improve that materials.
