This article sustains that knowledge of materials and their processing are key factors of technological and industrial development. The industrial revolutions of the past centuries are evidence of the relationship between the dynamics of innovation and technology of materials. The materials knowledge field has as principal challenges confront the scarcity of raw materials and the reduction of environmental impact due to processing and final waste disposal. This has generated the need to strengthen the scientific and professional training materials to support national production systems and create value. The materials is a strategic area in many developed countries due to its importance of materials on the technology development. Finally, the article discuss the sharp increase in graduate programs in the area of materials against the small number of undergraduate programs in engineering materials.
