Graduate programs are offered leading to the degrees of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy with a major in materials science and engineering. The materials science and engineering program is flexible and interdisciplinary in nature. Students may be admitted from a wide range of disciplines. These include physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, materials engineering, and engineering science programs.

Admission

See the above programs for admissions information.

Interdisciplinary Graduate Minor in Computational Science (IGMCS)

The Department of Materials Science and Engineering participates in the interdisciplinary graduate minor in computational science (IGMCS) program. Any student pursuing a master’s or PhD with a major in materials science and engineering can receive a minor in computational science by completing the appropriate IGMCS requirements. For additional information, see the description of the Interdisciplinary Graduate Minor in Computational Science  listed under Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science or visit the IGMCS website. The Department of Materials Science and Engineering also contributes courses to the IGMCS program curriculum.
