The COVID-19 pandemic has resulted in urgent and profound changes in how courses are taught at all levels and across disciplines. Materials Science and Engineering education in particular has some differences from other disciplines and even other science and engineering programs that might result in distinct needs. While many of the changes were prompted by requirements at the university and governmental level, the specifics were typically decided by individual instructors. The TMS Education Committee prepared a survey of instructors to better understand how these changes were addressed by at an individual level, and to further understand if any of these changes might be useful moving forward. The survey results include data and discussion on (1) classes taught and modality used, (2) various tools used to facilitate online instruction, and (3) free-form comments from individual faculty perspectives. Additionally, student perspectives on learning during Covid-19 will be included.
