Application to our graduate programs (MS MSE and PhD MSE) may be made through the Associate Dean for Mentoring, Academic Progress and Advancement (ADMAPA).
The Program leading to the degree of “Doctor of Philosophy in Materials Science and Engineering”, or Ph.D. (MSE), aims to provide students with an advanced graduate education that will prepare them for professional careers as high-level materials scientists and engineers in industry, academia, or the public sector. The Ph.D. (MSE) Program is specifically designed to enable students to (a) obtain a broad, integrated, interdisciplinary understanding of the four core elements of MSE – the structure/composition, properties, synthesis/processing, and performance of materials – and their interrelationships; (b) acquire a specialized, thorough knowledge of at least one class of materials (e.g., ceramics, polymers, composites, alloys, semiconductors, etc.); and (c) gain the competence to undertake original and independent research in materials science and engineering.
The Program leading to the degree of “Master of Science in Materials Science and Engineering” or M.S. (MSE) aims to provide students with the basic graduate education that will prepare them for professional careers as materials scientist and engineers in industry or the public sector.
