MSE, as a multidisciplinary subject, embodies broad range and varieties of topics. Due to that, theoretical work of this subject is potentially of great value. As mentioned by Phillip J. C. in 1971, "theory may provide a common language to facilitate the exchange of ideas among chemists, crystallographers, metallurgists, and physicists. Such necessary for further progress in this...field."

However, due to its interdisciplinary character, compared with traditional metallurgy course (one of the subjects that MSE originated from), MSE emphasis more on the manufacturability, quality control, economical/environmental or social issue and other important applied topics, and lessen eduction in the scientific bases of its field.

A balance for dealing with this dilemma can be found in "An Introduction to Metallurgy". It provides an excellent comprehensive treatise for the metal physics and its application. This will help students in MSE to have a solidified foundation of this subject.
