Materials have become a very important aspect of the people daily life and the search for better and new kind of engineered materials has created some opportunities for the Information science and technology fraternity to investigate in to the world of materials. Hence, this combination of materials science and Information science together is nowadays known as Materials Informatics. An Object-Oriented Database Model has been proposed for organizing advanced engineering materials datasets. Engineering materials databases are the basis of materials informatics, manufacturing industries and the related disciplines.
